ABSA Currie Cup: Lions (7) v Blue Bulls (21) (F/T)


Written by Rob Otto (robdylan)

Posted in :Bulls, Currie Cup, Lions on 21 Jun 2008 at 16:00

The Lions invite their northern neighbours to Ellis Park for the final game in the opening round of the Currie Cup.

Will the Lions prove too strong, given the lack of Bok call-ups from their ranks?

Or will the blend of youth and experience in the Bulls team be enough to take the points?

Kick-off in Johannesburg is at 17h05.

Vodacom Blue Bulls: 15 Tiger Mangweni, 14 Akona Ndungane, 13 Marius Delport, 12 Wynand Olivier, 11 John Mametsa, 10 Morné Steyn, 9 JP Joubert, 8 Pedrie Wannenburg, 7 Wikus van Heerden (captain), 6 Deon Stegmann, 5 Wilhelm Steenkamp, 4 Francois van Schouwenburg, 3 Werner Kruger, 2 Derick Kuün, 1 Jaco Engels.

Replacements: 16 Bandise Maku, 17 Rayno Gerber, 18 Fudge Mabeta, 19 Hilton Lobberts, 20 Ruan Snyman, 21 Burton Francis, 22 Dewald Potgieter.

Xerox Lions: 15 Earl Rose, 14 Louis Ludik, 13 Jaco Pretorius, 12 Walter Venter, 11 Ryno Benjamin, 10 Jaco van Schalkwyk, 9 Jano Vermaak, 8 Willem Alberts, 7 Franco van der Merwe, 6 Cobus Grobbelaar (captain), 5 Gerhard Mostert, 4 Dewald Senekal, 3 JC Janse van Rensburg, 2 Willie Wepener, 1 Heinke van der Merwe.

Replacements: 16 Ethienne Reynecke, 17 Gert Muller, 18 Justin Wheeler, 19 Wilhelm Koch, 20 Chris Jonck, 21 Jannie Boshoff, 22 Dusty Noble.

Referee: Craig Joubert
Touch judges: Gareth Lloyd-Jones, Peter de Bruin

    I was expecting a good CC from the Lions, considering it is virtually theie S14 team.

    Being a Lions supporter must be massively frustrating.

    Probably true…one bit of gossip news, our guys wanted to buy Butch, but his club wanted nothing of it…he is going to stay there for the 3 years he signed.

    I’m feeling the same way..kinda lost my will to support them anymore..it could sadly be the end of them in the coming years..unless something drastic is done to change the fortunes..starting by moving away from Ellis Park and engaging the supporters again and get them to buy into a new era.

    STOP selling our frickin best players give them incentives to stay..1 of those being a healthy support base at a cozy viby staduim.

    I missed the game and glad for it..infact I may choose not to watch any more of their games till things change..25 years of my support and I no longer feel inclined too anymore.

  • come on, guys… I now times are tough, but you should never turn your back on your team. Only weak knobs like Simon Borchard do that.

    None of them are turning their backs, they just feel like doing it. Some of us have felt the same way sometimes.

    no true fan ever follows through with it though.

    I’ve been a fan since the 70′s and after Saturday’s game this is the first time I felt like this…we were so bad it’s unbelievable…I hope Loffie cracks the whip this week because that was a poor performance

  • As I have been saying all year….what the heck is Jaco Pretorius doing in teh side…

    Loffie….please play Boshoff at 13…and give him a gmae or two to get into it…

    I bet him and Walter will develop into a great centre pairing…

  • And I was aomplaining that Vermaak did not even get the oppo to join the training squad….but after Saturday I think it was a great call…

    He stands around behind the ruck doing WHAT at times…donno if he is winking at a girl or guy in the crowds…

  • This game was a huge step backwards for us. The players didn’t look very committed to me. Jannie Boshoff was one of the culprits, at least twice when he broke the line he had players in support but he couldn’t find them before he got tackled. If he got those passes away it really could have been a different story.

  • Think the Lions was pretty unlucky to lose this one. That yellow on Mostert was a real joke and thought myself after the Vermaak try they are in business. Then they lose the plot in the final qoater.

  • I dont know why but I am also a big Lion fan for some reason. Think they are a young side with a lot of potential. Think their problem is defense out wide but as a neatral I dont think it was a bad game. The game was there for the Lions taking after the best try in round one by Vermaak. But then Meisiekind gets into Mostert way. That hurt them. My family laughed themself to death when I start screaming at Meisiekind.

    I agree that the yellow was a joke, Olivier was on the wrong side and Mostert cleaned him…never a yellow
