Erasmus replaces injured Brink

The Lions have made one change to their team to play in the Super Rugby semifinal against the Waratahs at Emorates Airline Park on Saturday. Lock Lourens Erasmus will start at flank in place of the injured Cyle Brink and Lions coach Swys de Bruin said there will be some swapping between Erasmus and Franco Mostert who has previously played on the side of the scrum. De Bruin admitted that it was a huge blow to the team losing Brink but said he trusted the depth within his squad as it has been responsible for getting the team to the playoffs with many of their stars suffering injuries during the season.
