The bookies have the Lions as favourites but most Saffer journos favour the Stormers

I picked the Stomps by 12 on SuperBru but expect them to win by 30 plus.

If both sides could just take it easy on each other please, especially the Boks in each team, that'd be just great.

Impossible....this game has too much riding on it in terms of the Soup competition playoffs...one team will basically be out if they lose tomorrow

Cape Town - Flyhalf Elton Jantjies' exclusion from the Lions team for Saturday's Super Rugby match against the Stormers in Johannesburg is believed to be due an altercation between him and his team-mates.

After naming their team on Thursday, the Lions said Jantjies was not picked because he "breached team protocol".

The Lions did not state exactly what team protocol Jantjies broke but Netwerk24 reported on Thursday that the Springbok had a difference in opinion with some of the Lions players.

The report added that Jantjies broke the team protocol last weekend during their trip to Durban for a match against the Sharks, although the Lions did not confirm whether it took place on or off the field.

Some rumours suggest he had an altercation with team-mates on the field at Kings Park and also disregarded a decision from captain Kwagga Smith to kick for posts.

The report added that there could also have been a war of words between Jantjies and team-mates after the pivot had thrown two passes that led to intercept tries from the Sharks.

Earlier in the week it was reported that Jantjies would miss the Stormers game due to an unspecified illness.

"Life goes on and no-one is greater that the system in which we operate, especially not in our family here at the Lions," coach Swys de Bruin said.

With Jantjies dropped, Shaun Reynolds will wear the No 10 jersey and partner Ross Cronje at halfback.

Elsewhere, hooker Malcolm Marx returns to captain the Lions after missing the 27-17 defeat to the Sharks.

The Lions pack shows some changes from last week. Carlu Sadie makes a return loosehead prop as does Vincent Tshituka at flank.

In a positional change, Cyle Brink moves from No 7 to No 6.

Saturday's clash is scheduled for 17:15.

The Stormers can afford to lose this one. They have two easy games left at home. Must win for the Lions.

I met him and spoke to him briefly a few weeks ago and could not make out if he is socially awkward or just aloof but he is certainly not an openly friendly person. I take my hat off to the Lions management, team first and individuals second is good in my books.

I agree. They've created a great team environment that reminds me of how people describe Saracens.

And it's in those sort of team climates that certain types of players can be better managed.

Netwerk24 reported on Friday that Jantjies has apologised to his team-mates but his future with the team appears to be in doubt.

The report added that Jantjies will meet with Lions CEO Rudolf Straeuli on Monday where the situation and his future will be discussed.

His contract with the Lions ends at the end of 2019.

Saturday's Lions-Stormers clash at Ellis Park is scheduled for 17:15.
