Kriel back for Lions

Jaco Kriel will make his return when the Sigma Lions travel to Bloemfontein to take on the Toyota Cheetahs on Wednesday.

Kriel, who has previously captained the Lions, will make his 51st appearance for the Joburg-based side when he takes to the field tomorrow night.

Another change to the side, which was victorious in Kimberley last week, is Junior Springbok, Henco van Wyk. This exciting centre, who scored two tries in the Lions u20s opening match against the Vodacom Bulls u20, will be making his Carling Currie Cup debut from the bench.

Emmanuel Tshituka also returns from injury.

This match will kick off at 19:00.
