Hacjivah Dayimani will replace Erasmus on the bench in the only switch up to the South African side to take on the Waratahs.

The Waratahs named their team for the semi-final on Thursday night, with Tolu Latu starting over Damien Fitzpatrick.

The Lions host the Waratahs in Johannesburg on Saturday July 28, kicking off 3:05pm local, 11:05pm AEST, LIVE onFOX SPORTS and via RUGBY.com.au RADIO.
