July 12, 2012
The MTN Lions have made one change to their starting team that will travel to Pretoria on Saturday to face the Vodacom Bulls, with Junior Boks lock Ruan Botha replacing injured Franco van der Merwe.

Van der Merwe has played in all 14 matches this year, but will not play in his side's last match of the current Vodacom Super Rugby campaign.

Botha produced some excellent rugby for the Lions when he was called upon during the Australasian tour and was one of the standout players in the Junior Boks side that won the IRB Junior World Championship last month.

The MTN Lions team is: 15 James Kamana, 14 Lionel Mapoe, 13 Waylon Murray, 12 Butch James, 11 Anthony Volmink, 10 Elton Jantjies, 9 Michael Bondesio, 8 Joshua Strauss (captain), 7 Grant Hattingh, 6 Derick Minnie, 5 Ruan Botha, 4 Hendrik Roodt, 3 Jacobie Adriaanse, 2 Callie Visagie, 1 JC Janse van Rensburg. Replacements: 16 Martin Bezuidenhout, 17 Ruan Dreyer, 18 Etienne Oosthuizen, 19 Jaco Kriel, 20 Ross Cronje, 21 JR Esterhuizen, 22 Ruan Combrinck.
