Emirates Lions

All the Springboks and SA ‘A’ players are back for the Emirates Lions in their Vodacom Super Rugby encounter with the Sunwolves at Emirates Airline Park on Saturday (17:15) with the exception of captain Warren Whiteley.

Whiteley was ruled out with a pelvis injury and is expected to be side-lined for up to eight weeks. In his absence Jaco Kriel will captain the side.

It is the Lions’ penultimate Super Rugby match before the play-offs start. The team has a bye next week and travel to Durban to take on the Sharks on 15 July.

The Quarter Final is scheduled for 22 July.
