USA captain Todd Clever will get his first start of the Currie Cup season, as he lines up at No. 8 for the Xerox Lions Saturday against Western Province.
Willem Alberts is ruled out due to injury and Clever, who was being eased into Currie Cup rugby this fall, and played all of five minutes last week, will star at the base of the scrum.
