Good to see Nothnagel in the mix for a possible SR debut
With Marx rested, a weaker front row and a fairly green bench the Lions just can't afford to fall behind on the scoreboard
Edit: Only saw now Cronje is also out and there's no scrummie on the bench
Ross Cronje will undergo a small procedural operation which will keep him out of action for a week.
