Leopards stalwart in last run

LEOPARDS centre Deon van Rensburg will play his 92nd and probably last match for the union in their promotion-relegation match against the Eagles in George.

LEOPARDS centre Deon van Rensburg will play his 92nd and probably last match for the union in their promotion-relegation match against the Eagles in George.

The return of Van Rensburg, who moves to Johannesburg next week, is one of three changes and two further position changes to the team that narrowly beat South Western Districts in Potchefstroom last weekend.

Leopards captain Wilhelm Koch has been bracketed with Christo van Niekerk, who will lead the team should Koch not be fit to play. Koch will have a new flank partner in Bennie Adams, who replaces the injured Thabo Mamojele.

The third change is at lock where the athletic Ligtoring Landman returns to the starting side for Bradley Mockford.

Van Rensburg's return means that Jovan Bowles moves out onto the right wing and Danie Dames out to fullback.

The Leopards need to win this match to stay in the Premier league. - Sapa
