Rose dropped from Lions starting lineup

9:39 am on 25 March 2010

The Springbok utility back Earl Rose has paid the price for poor form, being dropped for the Lions Super 14 rugby match against the Highlanders at Carisbrook tomorrow night.

Coach Dick Muir has made four changes to the winless Lions from the side that lost to the Crusaders last weekend.

He some some of the changes were due to injury and rotation, however he says Rose was dropped because of poor form.

Amoung the other changes is the return to the starting lineup of first five Carlos Spencer.
