Andre Warner and Bok veteran missed the Round one match and made way for Smit and Morné van den Berg.
On the other side of the spectrum, flank Roelof Smit will return to full training this week.
Once on the verge of Springboks selection, the former Bulls loose forward’s career has been interrupted with numerous injuries.
Nonetheless, his return could be a major boost for the Lions, who struggled with their set-pieces especially the scrums against the Sharks.
The Lions travel to Newlands next to face the Stormers on Saturday, October 17.
