Cape Town - Lions coach Ivan van Rooyen has named his team for Saturday's Super Rugby encounter against the Reds in Johannesburg.
Springbok Andries Coetzee makes a welcome return at fullback, replacing Tiaan Swanepoel.
In the only other change to the starting line-up, 22-year-old Morne van den Berg replaces the injured Andre Warner at scrumhalf, with the latter sidelined with an ankle injury.
Dillon Smit and Shaun Reynolds are new additions on the bench.
The Lions will be desperate to improve on their 38-8 defeat at the hands of the Jaguares in Buenos Aires last weekend.
