Cape Town – The Lions have announced that they will not wear their Marvel-inspired jerseys in Saturday’s Super Rugby clash against the Bulls in Johannesburg.
The Lions will not wear their Spider-Man strip due to fears the colours may clash with the Bulls’ Captain America outfit.
During last week’s Stormers v Lions clash at Newlands there was also a jersey clash as the hosts were forced to change their Thor-inspired strip at half-time.
The Lions will wear a predominantly white strip at Ellis Park on Saturday.
Kick-off is at 15:05.
Please note that the Emirates Lions will not be playing in their Marvel inspired jersey due to jersey clash concerns.
