Lions injury update:
Stuart Hogg (Dead leg): The Scotland captain, who is named among the replacements for the game at Emirates Airline Park, is nursing an injury.
Hogg skippered the Lions to a 56-14 victory over the Sigma Lions in the tour opener in Joburg on Saturday but the tourists will err on the side of caution in terms of the Sharks game and could be removed from the bench.
“Hogg is carrying a little bit of dead leg so we’ll probably make a decision on that in the morning to see how he holds up,” said Steve Tandy, the Lions defence coach.
