Game 2 of 4 on tour sees the Lions facing the Blues.

The Lions have been showing lot’s of promise all season, but seem to have a problem when it comes to turning that showing of promise into log points.

The Blues have only won one more game than the Lions this season and both teams are coming off back to back losses.

This has to be a target game for the Lions.

Will the Lions finally not only be ahead during the match, but will they be ahead when it counts after the hooter?

Or will the Blues show patience and surge ahead when the Lions’ bench is called into service?

Venue: Eden Park, Auckland
Kick-off: 19:35 Local time, 09:35 SA Time

Referee: James Leckie (Australia)

  • Mentz does some great work in chasing a kick and manages to gether it and win a FK for the Lions ON their try-line.

    AP clear from the line to outside their 22.

  • Toeava puts one through on the foot and the LIONS JUST get there to dot it down and get the 22 drop out.

    Clever NAILED high after the whistle. They say it was legit but Clever seems to have no idea where he is, before eventually recovering.

  • :cool: Finally a ref who is adhering to the “retire 10m away from where the ball is going to land until you are put onside” law.

    Blues get nailed for not retiring while they wait for a kicker to put them onside.

  • Ok, enough blowing smoke up people’s asses – the Lions are super-kak and should be dropped in favour of the Spears – at least they will have an excuse for losing 95% of their games for 5 seasons – the Lions don’t! :evil:

    And why on earth would we even CONSIDER keeping the Cheetahs and dropping the Lions?!?!?!?!

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 138) :
    Because the Cheetahs are at least only in their 3rd season of S14 rugby, and have at least won a few watered down CCs of late.

    I would rather we combined the 2 if needs be – keeping them as they are is just a means to embarrass SA rugby.

  • @Big Fish (Comment 139) : I wrote an article to that effect last year. Turns out the Lions and Cheetahs individually are (somehow) slightly worse than the Cats were as a combined entity.
