The Emirates Lions welcome the Vodacom Bulls to Emirates Airline Park on Saturday in round 4 of the Rainbow Cup SA tournament.
Consistency and experience were key factors for coach Ivan van Rooyen in his team selection this week. He was forced to make a change to the starting line-up, with Len Massyn coming in for Francke Horn.
“Consistency is the main thing for us; consistency in training, consistency in attitude and consistency in team selection. We are facing the team at the top of the log and it will be tough. We have a lot of respect for the Bulls,” said Van Rooyen.
The match will kick-off at 15:30.
