All the Springboks and SA ‘A’ players are back for the Emirates Lions in their Vodacom Super Rugby encounter with the Sunwolves at Emirates Airline Park on Saturday (17:15) with the exception of captain Warren Whiteley.
Whiteley was ruled out with a pelvis injury and is expected to be side-lined for up to eight weeks. In his absence Jaco Kriel will captain the side.
It is the Lions’ penultimate Super Rugby match before the play-offs start. The team has a bye next week and travel to Durban to take on the Sharks on 15 July.
The Quarter Final is scheduled for 22 July.
