JOHANNESBURG - Lions coach Johan Ackermann has named his side to take on the Bulls at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday.

Ackermann has made two enforced changes to the Lions' starting 11 that outplayed the Stormers so emphatically last weekend.

Flanker Warwick Tecklenburg comes in for the injured Derick Minnie, while centre JW Jonker replaces Alwyn Hollenbach, who failed a fitness test on Thursday.

Lose forward Willie Britz returns to the squad having recovered from a hip flexor injury, and will start from the substitutes bench.

Utility back Courtnall Skosan was also named among the substitutes and will hope to make his Super Rugby debut.

The match will kick off at 17h05.
