The Lions have retained the starting Super Rugby team that beat the Sharks in Durban for this weekend’s Super Rugby match against the Stormers in Johannesburg.

This is the first time this season that coach Johnn Ackermann has named the same team on consecutive weekends.

“We are very happy that we can pick the same side as last week. We opted for continuity as it brings stability amongst other things,” said Ackermann of his selections.

“Thus we decided not the use our rotational system this week,” the #Lions coach added.

The only potential change is with Jaco Kriel (pictured) has been included in the starting line-up despite him suffering a knock on his arm.

Kriel will undergo a late fitness test on Friday as he will have time to show that he is fully recovered.
