Lions head coach Johan Ackermann has announced two 28-man sides to face the Leopards, in the first Super Rugby warm-up matches of 2014, taking place at Ellis Park on Friday.


A rolling substitution system will be in place for both matches, as both games will act as opportunities to test and assess various combinations.


The first game will kick off at 16h30, while the second match will get underway from 19h00.


Entrance to both matches is free to the public.
