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?
