S14 ’09 Game 61 – Reds (20) v Lions (31) F/T


Written by Andre Bosch (KSA Shark ©)

Tagged with : , ,

The Lions are in Brisbane for their 3rd match on tour.

The Lions have been dealt a cruel blow losing two captains in two weeks. The absence on Cobus Grobbelaar and Jaque Fourie will be huge. The Lions have been showing promise all season, but the absence of those two will mean that, that promise will probably not be fulfilled this weekend.

Can the Lions eventually fulfill the promise they have shown?

Will the Reds manage to move out of 13th on the log?

Venue: Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane
Kick-off: 17:35 Local Time, 09:35 SA Time

Replacements:
16 Saia Faingaa, 17 Jack Kennedy, 18 Leroy Houston, 19 Scott Higginbotham, 20 Ben Lucas, 21 Charlie Fetoai, 22 Luke Morahan.

  • Worth a try, Rahul Plett and Bullies Have gone with the Lions on LMS. :shock:

    I picked them on SB but am not brave enough for an LMS pick. :wink: Well I’m not alive in LMS so i couldn’t if I wanted to. :sad:

    11 picks for the Reds on LMS. (wouldn’t another upset like last week just be dandy?) :lol:

    Wepener most definitely the 3rd best hooker in RSA… with Strauss just behind him… Vermaak also just behind Kockott in 3rd place…
