The other big match of the day.

Will the Sharks beat the Lions to secure a home semifinal for the second year running?

Replacements: 16 Skipper Badenhorst, 17 Patric Cilliers, 18 Alistair Hargreaves, 19 Michael Rhodes, 20 Charl McLeod, 21 Monty Dumond, 22 Adrian Jacobs.

Golden Lions: 15 Earl Rose, 14 Michael Killian, 13 Jannie Boshoff, 12 Doppies la Grange, 11 Johan  Jackson, 10 Herkie Kruger, 9 Chris Jonck, 8 Willem Alberts, 7 Derick Minnie, 6 Cobus Grobbelaar (captain), 5 Franco van der Merwe, 4 Nico Luus, 3 Kevin Buys, 2 Hans van Dyk, 1 JC Janse van Rensburg.

  • End to end stuff right now. Both Lions AND Sharks have opportunities to score but duff it up.

    Sharks gets a scrum right in front of the posts 5m out.

    They go right but Ru has a HOWLER and skip passes into touch. :roll:

  • Lions after having been warned for negative play in the red zone finally get carded.

    Sharks pick the lineout and the Sharks MAUL Bis over for the try!!

    :mrgreen:

    Ru puts it over but the Lions got a penalty just before the break.

  • Sharks have 68% possession and 71% territory. We should have more to show for it. Hopefully the floodgates open now.

  • @robdylan (Comment 56) : actually this lions try (according to commentators) was straight through flyhalf channel.
    I thought maybe it’s just me but I did not like the way he played. had good touches but mostly wasted possession. I’d rather told ruan to take care of kicking.

    I haven’t seen much Rugby this season but heard someone somewhere say that Strauss has really come good this season.

    After seeing his form yesterday I can only ask. WTF? :shock:

    He should NOT have a sniff in at the S14 squad if he plays like THAT.

    @KSA Shark © (Comment 61) : he had few solid outings this year – he was MOM last week (but only because scored 2 tries – methinks). but he is not exactly very creative.
