South Africa: Bok Wing Set to Make Golden Lions Debut

Cape Town — Springbok wing Jamba Ulengo is set to make his Golden Lions debut in this weekend's Currie Cup clash against Griquas in Kimberley.

In what is the final round of group stage fixtures before the tournament semi-finals, the Lions need a win to ensure that they book their place in the last four.

That certainly won't be an easy task considering that Griquas are top of the Currie Cup log having won four of their five fixtures, but the Lions are boosted by the return of Springbok lock Marvin Orie .

Ulengo, who has signed a two year deal with the union, will play off the bench.

There is more good news in the form of flank Cyle Brink, who is named in the starting line-up for the first time this Currie Cup season having now fully recovered from a broken wrist while centre Duncan Matthews will earn his first start in a Lions jersey.

Ulengo made his name at the Bulls between 2014-2018 and played his only Test against Wales in Cardiff in 2016, while most recently he has been turning out for the Cheetahs in the PRO14.

Kick-off on Saturday is at 15:00 .
