Johannesburg - Springbok flyhalf Marnitz Boshoff will lead the Golden Lions XV against Griquas in a Currie Cup Qualifier clash at Marks Park on Saturday (15:00 kick-off).

With Super Rugby in recess due to the international window, the Lions have opted to give a few of their players a run in the Currie Cup.

Ruan Ackermann and Cyle Brink, who have been cutting their teeth in Super Rugby, will partner Robert Kruger in the loose trio.

Lock Lourens “Makou” Erasmus gets a chance and will partner with Martin Muller while both Jacques van Rooyen and Corne Fourie will start against Griquas.

Rohan van Rensburg and Stokkies Hanekom will man the midfield, and Shaun Reynolds starts at fullback.

Golden Lions XV team:

15 Shaun Reynolds, 14 Selom Gavor, 13 Stokkies Hanekom, 12 Rohan Janse van Rensburg, 11 Koch Marx, 10 Marnitz Boshoff (captain), 9 Ricky Scroeder, 8 Ruan Ackermann, 7 Robert Kruger, 6 Cyle Brink, 5 Martin Muller, 4 Lourens Erasmus, 3 Jacques van Rooyen, 2 Ramone Samuels, 1 Corne Fourie
