Warren Whiteley will captain the Lions when they face the Sharks in Durban on Saturday and Malcolm Marx will run out in his 50th Super Rugby match.

Whiteley returns to Super Rugby action after injury side-lined him in March this year. Also back from injury are Marx and Ross Cronjé while Courtnall Skosan should taste his first Super Rugby action of the year from the bench.

A Lions side brimming with experience has been selected for this big local derby which sees Springboks Aphiwe Dyantyi and Ruan Combrinck covering the wings, Franco Mostert with Marvin Orie at lock and a front-row of Dylan Smith, Marx and Ruan Dreyer.
