Lions unchanged for ‘Canes clash

The Lions have named an unchanged side for their Super Rugby game against the Hurricanes as they look for a win that seal a home final.

Harold Vorster remains at 12 as Rohan Janse van Rensburg continues to wait for a start, with Jaco Kriel again captaining in the absence of the injured Warren Whiteley. He is alongside Kwagga Smith and Ruan Ackermann.

Up front Ruan Dreyer and Jacques van Rooyen continue as props either side of Malcolm Marx.
