Four changes for Lions ahead of Sharks clash

The Emirates Lions team made four changes ahead of their Rainbow Cup encounter against the Cell C Sharks on Saturday.

Tiaan Swanepoel, Sibusiso Sangweni, Stean Pienaar and Wilhelm van der Sluys were not considered due to injuries while Willem Alberts is still sideline with a calf injury. The Lions did not specify what the injuries were but Swanepoel was ruled out earlier in the week with an ankle injury.

Pienaar pulled a hamstring in training and was replaced by Rabs Maxwane while EW Viljoen slots in for Swanepoel at fullback.
