The Emirates Lions host the Waratahs at Emirates Airline Park in the Vodacom Super Rugby this weekend. The line-up sees three changes with Harold Vorster, Ross Cronjé  and Robbie Coetzee in the starting line-up.

Vorster is in for Howard Mnisi who injured his knee in the first round clash against the Toyota Cheetahs in Bloemfontein last weekend. Mnisi will go undergo surgery next week after the swelling has subsided.

Dylan Smith has recovered from his shoulder injury and comes in on the bench, as does Sylvian Mahuza.

Stokkies Hanekom will join the Southern Kings on a loan basis while Koch Marx joins Griquas, also on loan.
