The Golden Lions Rugby Union announced the MTN Lions team to play in their second match of the 2012 Vodacom Super Rugby competition against the Hurricanes on Friday, 2 March 2012 at a press conference this afternoon.

Following their 27 – 25 victory over the Toyota Cheetahs this past weekend, the coaching staff and team has learnt many lessons and are spending the week correcting things they were not 100% happy with in the Cheetahs match.

In a tactical change, Cobus Grobbelaar has been moved to the bench while Warren Whiteley will start at Number 8, Joshua Strauss at Right lanker and Derick Minnie at Left Flanker.
