Sylvian Mahuza gets his first start in Super Rugby for the Emirates Lions against the Vodacom Bulls at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday in one of seven changes to the side. Mahuza starts at fullback, replacing Jaco van der Walt who got injured against the Jaguares last weekend.
Marnitz Boshoff also gets his first run for the Super Rugby side with the injury that Elton Jantjies sustained to his hand. Jantjies underwent an operation on Tuesday. In other rotational changes Malcolm Marx, Andries Ferreira, Warwick Tecklenburg and Rohan Janse van Rensburg all get a start against the Bulls. Ashlon Davis has been included on the bench and if he gets a run will make his debut. That means that the Lions have had 12 new players this season and it shows that they keep developing young players.
The Emirates Lions will play in their away strip in this game.
