Lions coach Ivan van Rooyen has named his workforce for his or her Tremendous Rugby Unlocked conflict towards the Stormers at Newlands on Saturday.
Van Rooyen has made only one change to the squad that went down 19-16 to the Sharks in Durban final weekend.
Morne van den Berg replaces the injured Dillon Smit at scrumhalf, with the latter having dislocated his shoulder within the match at Kings Park.
Smit went beneath the knife on Tuesday and is predicted to be sidelined for as much as 4 months.
Springbok Ross Cronje is available in on the bench to supply scrumhalf cowl.
Van Rooyen mentioned consistency was key when naming his workforce after a lovely second half exhibiting towards the Sharks.
Saturday’s conflict at Newlands kicks off at 19:00.
