The Lions have announced their team to play the Chiefs in the Super 14 clash at Coca-Cola Park on Friday.
Carlos Spencer will once again lead the line from fly-half while there is a call for American Todd Clever, who is promoted from the bench.
Dick Muir sticks with the same back-line but has decided to re-jig his back-row where Clever comes in for Jonothan Mokuena at number eight while Derick Minnie gets a start at seven.
The Lions will be looking to bounce back from their opening 26-13 defeat at home to the Stormers with a strong showing against the 2009 finalists, who won a see-saw match against the Sharks in Durban last weekend.
Lions: 15 Earl Rose, 14 Tonderai Chavhanga, 13 Deon Van Rensburg, 12 Doppies La Grange, 11 Wandile Mjekevu, 10 Carlos Spencer, 9 JP Joubert, 8 Todd Clever, 7 Derick Minnie, 6 Cobus Grobbelaar (capt), 5 Willem Stoltz, 4 Franco van der Merwe, 3 Ross Geldenhuys, 2 Hannes Franklin, 1 Heinke van der Merwe.
Replacements: 16 Charles Emslie, 17 JC Kevin Janse van Rensburg Buys, 18 Jacques Lombaard, 19 Jonathan Mokuena, 20 Jacques Coetzee, 21 Burton Francis, 22 Michael Killian.
Date: Friday, February 19
