Lions unchanged for crucial Hurricanes clash




Lions Super rugby head coach Swys de Bruyn has named an unchanged team to play the Hurricanes at Emirates Airline (Ellis Park) on Saturday.

The starting line-up is unchanged for this big encounter as the coach shows trust in the team that beat the Stormers last weekend having come out of that match without any injuries and the reputation intact.

Meanwhile the Lions have announced that Aphiwe Dyantyi has put pen to paper and committed to the Lions until 2021. Dyantyi has 22 Super Rugby caps for the Lions since his debut in 2018.


Andries Coetzee; Courtnall Skosan, Lionel Mapoe, Harold Vorster, Aphiwe Dyantyi; Shaun Reynolds, Ross Cronje; Kwagga Smith, Vincent Tshituka, Cyle Brink, Marvin Orie, Stephan Lewies, Carlu Sadie, Malcolm Marx (c), Dylan Smith.

Replacements: Jan-Henning Campher, Nathan McBeth, Johannes Jonker, Reinhard Nothnagel, Marnus Schoeman, Nic Groom Elton Jantjies, Tyrone Green.
