Emirates Lions coach Ivan van Rooyen has made only one change to the match 25 that travels to Cape Town for the Vodacom Super Rugby Unlocked clash with the DHL Stormers on Saturday.
After a sterling performance by Morné van den Berg, he gets a starting berth. Ross Cronjé comes in to replace the injured Dillon Smit who went under the knife on Tuesday for a dislocated shoulder and could be side-lined for up to four months.
Consistency was key for the coaching staff after a strong second half performance last weekend.
Kick-off is at 19:00 on Saturday 17 October.
