Lions head coach Johan Ackermann has named his 23-man side to take on the Rebels at Ellis Park on Friday evening.


In the forwards Ackermann has opted largely for consistency, selecting the same front row and loose trio that faced the Bulls before the June Test break.


The only change in the forwards sees Springbok lock Franco van der Merwe return to action, having fully recovered from his ankle injury.


Meanwhile, in the backline, Anthony Volmink will start at left wing, while Deon van Rensburg covers the right wing berth.


The match will kick off at 19h10 (local time).
