Lions Super rugby head coach Swys de Bruin has named Malcolm Marx as captain of his team to play the Stormers at Emirates Airline Park on Saturday.

The Lions pack shows some changes from last week. Carlu Sadie makes a return as does Vincent Tshituka.

In a positional change Cyle Brink moves from seven to six.

Shaun Reynolds will partner with Ross Cronje in a new half-back pairing.

Elton Jantjies was not considered for selection this week due to a breach of team protocol.

Meanwhile, the Lions have also announced that Andries Coetzee (until end of Super Rugby 2020) and Reinhard Nothnagel (until end of 2021) have both extended their contracts.
