The Lions were dealt a double injury blow with the news that Lionel Mapoe and Michael Bondesio have been ruled out for six weeks.

Shock 21-20 victory over the Cheetahs on Saturday came at a price, with Mapoe straining a hamstring and scrum-half Bondesio withdrawing pre-match thanks to a quad strain.

Better news for the Lions came with the respective recoveries of Anthony Volmink and Elton Jantjies, whose progress after shoulder injuries is going well.
