Lions Tour ’09 – Royal XV (25) v British Lions (37) F/T

Tagged with : , , ,

We have been counting down the days for ages now and finally we have reached zero. The Lions are here and they mean business.

The Lions have named a very strong team that with a tweak here and there could for all intents and purposes be the test side to face the Springboks on 20 June in Durban.

The Royal XV is a bit of a patchwork side made up of Leopards, Griquas and Pumas. There are a few names with S14 experience amongst them, but with the limited time they have spent together and the quality of the opposition we can expect them to spend most of the afternoon putting in tackle practice.

The Lions last tour may have been 12 years ago but expect similar results for the non-test matches. The 1997 British Lions walked away with only one loss from the 10 non-test matches played.

Venue: Royal Bafokeng Stadium, Rustenburg
Kick-off: 15:00 Local time

Referee: Marius Jonker
ARs: Jaco Peyper, Reuben Rossouw
TMO: Shaun Veldsman

British & Irish Lions:
15 Lee Byrne, 14 Tommy Bowe, 13 Keith Earls, 12 Jamie Roberts, 11 Shane Williams, 10 Ronan O’Gara, 9 Mike Blair, 8 Andy Powell, 7 Martyn Williams, 6 Joe Worsley, 5 Paul O’Connell (captain), 4 Simon Shaw, 3 Adam Jones, 2 Matthew Rees, 1 Andrew Sheridan
Replacements:
16 Lee Mears, 17 Phil Vickery, 18 Alun-Wyn Jones, 19 Stephen Ferris, 20 Mike Phillips, 21 Stephen Jones, 22 Riki Flutey

Royal XV:
15 Russell Jeacocks, 14 Egon Seconds, 13 Deon van Rensburg, 12 Hanno Coetzee, 11 Bjorn Basson, 10 Naas Olivier, 9 Sarel Pretorius, 8 Jonathan Mokuena, 7 Devon Raubenheimer, 6 Wilhelm Koch (captain), 5 Jacques Lombaard, 4 Rudi Mathee, 3 Bees Roux, 2 Rayno Barnes, 1 Albertus Buckle.
Replacements:
16 Pellow van der Westhuizen, 17 Stef Roberts, 18 Rynard Landman, 19 RW Kember, 20 Jacques Coetzee, 21 Riaan Viljoen, 22 Jovan Bowles.

    it is a team that is only being put together for this Lions tour.

    they could draw from the teams in the Highveld Region and it was originally the Highveld Xv. The match is being played at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium in and has taken on the name Royal XV

    Molly’s pick STILL confuses me.

    She has the Royals to be in the lead at H/T and to score the most tries yet she has the Lions to win by a very large margin. :?:

  • I picked the lions by 31 and I think it will not be enough.

    Lions look lean and mean. Almost every Royal XV player has a little bit of a spare wheel around the waist.

    I think it is because the pass was straight after a loooooong kick and all the officials were down the other side of the pitch.

  • What has gone wrong with scrumming in SA? I think the Sharks and at a push the Lions are the only half decent scrummaging teams. The rest are so poor. Even the Bulls, don’t have a great front row anymore.

    No you won’t :sad:

    No default picks
    This tournament is so short that allocating any default points will have an adverse effect on the outcome. If you do not make a prediction, or you join the tournament late, you will not be eligible for any points for missed games.

    If the Royals do win then there will only be two players in our pool with win points so you will still be level with MOST of us.

My mate from Durbs who is coming to the game has a bakkie but it is a week day and I don’t know if he’ll be able to get away early enough to get a spot at stables. Just need a plan B in case he can’t.

  • @JarsonX (Comment 152) :

    Look at the post above, that is Rob’s score on the “log” yet on the results page he only has 2,20.

    The 2,70 is correct but they have different points in different places so depending on where you look it will depend on what you think a guy scored in that round.

    it is obvious now when there is only one round to compare, but once you get a few rounds into the game then small erros like this go unnoticed. That was why i stopped doing Guiness premiership update threads a few months ago becasue SB cocked up the scores as they have done here.
