TEAM ANNOUNCEMENT: Lions coach  Johan Ackermann made a number of changes to his team to Griquas in a Currie Cup game in Kimberley on Saturday.

There are three changes to the starting line-up and another three on the bench.

Courtnall Skosan, Luvuyiso Lusaseni and Dylan Smith will start against the Peacock Blues.

Corné Fourie, Bobby de Wee and Ruaan Lerm will warm the bench in the place of Justin Ackerman, Lusaseni and Victor Sekekete.
 
As Griquas is a Super Rugby partner of the Golden Lions, with some Lions players in action for them, the match can shed some light on the depth of talent in the region.
