The second round of the Super 14 draws to a close with the much anticipated visit by the Lions to Durban.
Both teams performed well last week and this week will give a much better indication of how relevant that performance was once they meet each other.
Will the Durban humidity spoil what could be one of the most entertaining matches of the weekend? Let’s face it though most rugby games would be better than some of the games we had to watch on Friday.
