The tour rolls on an stops in Cape Town before heading back up the coast en route to Durban for the first test.

Will a weakened WP team stand in the way of this, the lesser of the two Lions teams on tour?

Or will the Lions want to show that their narrow win against the Free State was nothing other than an aberration?

Kick-off at Newlands is at 15h00.

  • @rekinek (Comment 13) : I’m more worried about Jamie Roberts to be honest. O’Driscoll is good but he’s not the player he once was!

  • @Villie (Comment 14) : experience, experience. I agree with you about Roberts, but in crunch time he will need BOD next to him.
