Scrumhalf bolter for Lions
INJURY UPDATE: The Lions at least have something to celebrate following their 30-33 defeat to the Stormers at Ellis Park.
The South African franchise confirmed that scrumhalf André Warner will be available for selection.
Warner, who joined the Lions at the start of the season, missed the win against the Reds and the dramatic defeat to the Stormers due to an ankle injury he suffered in Round One.
While, Springbok veteran Willem Alberts (biceps), Ross Cronje (ankle), Jamba Ulengo (calf) and Tiaan Swanepoel (hamstring) all came through the weekend without an issue.

On the flipside, Lions revealed that Jaco Kriel (ankle) will be available for selection in March or April.
The 30-year-old is currently recovering from an ankle injury he suffered while playing for Gloucester in the European Cup.
In other injury news, Cyle Brink (ruptured Achilles tendon right) and Rhyno Herbst (shoulder) face long spells on the sidelines.
The Lions have a bye this weekend before embarking on their Australasia tour which included matches against the Waratahs, Rebels, Blues and Highlanders.
