Johannesburg - Golden Lions coach Ivan van Rooyen has named his team to tackle Western Province in a Currie Cup clash at Ellis Park on Saturday.

The coach made two changes to the side that beat Free State 47-14 at home last weekend.

In the backline, Springbok fullback Andries Coetzee returns after a week of rest. He replaces Sylvian Mahuza, who moves to right wing in place of the injured Madosh Tambwe, who dislocated his ankle against the Cheetahs and will be out for the remainder of the season.

In the front row, Corne Fourie returns at hooker in place of Pieter Jansen.

Kick-off is scheduled for 15:00
