  • So with that win the lions move into 2nd spot on the Log.

    NOT where I would have expected them to be. Mossie makes the difference?

    Our log is automated :smile: I need to enter the amount of tries for each team and it then updates the points and positions all by itself. Can’t manually manipulate it :oops:

  • I watched the game when it was shown at 20:00…it was a close affair, we killed them in the 1st half, but then in the last 20 minutes we missed a lot of tackles and nearly handed them the match, it was 24-5 at halftime, and then 29-27 at one stage late in the 2nd half…it could have been 29-29 but they didn’t seem to have a kicker on the field..Conrad Barnard was replaced early on, and they only kicked 1 conversion from 6 tries…
