JOHANNESBURG – After spending the last nine months on the sidelines, flank Cyle Brink is back in the Lions team for Friday’s Super Rugby clash against the Sharks at Ellis Park.
And, in a surprising move, coach Swys de Bruin has opted to pick Springbok wing Aphiwe Dyantyi at outside centre.
Those are the most interesting selections made by De Bruin following his team’s bye weekend.
Brink returns to the fray after hurting his knee during a Springbok training camp last August – which robbed him of a chance of making his national debut.
Earlier in the year, he was also struck down by an injury which prevented him from running out against England in the three-Test June series.
