Press Release


Elton Jantjies will lead the Emirates Lions against the Stormers at Newlands on Saturday with some familiar faces as well as some new ones in the side that will travel to Cape Town on Friday.

Stalwarts like Jantjies, Malcolm Marx, Franco Mostert, Faf de Klerk, Courtnall Skosan, Rohan Janse van Rensburg and Howard Mnisi will all start for the Lions in the warm-up with some new faces like Marvin Orie and Madosh Tambwe in the starting line-up and Hencus van Wyk on the bench.
