Johannesburg - Lions coach Swys de Bruin on Monday named a 25-man squad to travel to New Zealand for Saturday’s Super Rugby final against the Crusaders in Christchurch.

Springbok wing Aphiwe Dyantyi, who suffered a hamstring injury in last Saturday’s semi-final win over the Waratahs, was included in the squad.

Flank Cyle Brink, who missed the semi-finals due to an arm ‘stinger’ suffered against the Jaguares in the quarter-finals, has also been passed fit to tour.

Saturday’s final in Christchurch is scheduled for 09:35 (SA time).
