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.

Lions captain Warren Whiteley had his wisdom teeth removed this week and could not recover on time.

The Lions will take a squad of 29 to Cape Town before they kick-off their Vodacom Super Rugby campaign on 25 February against the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein
