Sport24.co.za | Whiteley a late withdrawal from Lions team


Johannesburg – The Lions go into their Super Rugby clash against the Waratahs in Sydney on Friday without captain Warren Whiteley

The 30-year-old had been expected to make his return to the starting line-up, but he has not yet fully recovered from his knee injury and misses out once more. 

Franco Mostert will continue to captain the side in Whiteley’s absence, and he will start on the side of the scrum once again in the No 7 jersey. 

Elsewhere, Nic Groom is set to make his Lions debut off the bench while Harold Vorster starts at No 12 with Springbok Rohan Janse van Rensburg on the bench. 

Kick-off on Friday is at 11:45 (SA time).
