    Not too proud, it’s our worst season since 1998 in the Currie Cup, but we did show some promise in the last 2 matches. Always nice to klap the Bergbokke when they think they can just show up to collect 5 points…they didn’t even stay for the press conference…LOL!

  • @molly (Comment 9) : it’s about expectations and quality of the team – WP are a better team so you expect them in semis and if they lose …hm. this year nobody expected anything from lions so having them actually win something let’s celebrate.

  • @rekinek (Comment 15) : We all knew that WP v Lions was going to be a tough game for us, Lions have been our Achilles heel for the last few years. I honestly don’t think they went in there over confident. Possibly the try withing 2 minutes made them think they over estimated the Lions. It’s either that, or Andries Bekker being the worst forward EVER!

    The same thing happened during last year’s S14 when we missed out in our last match against them.

    At the final whistle, their players jumped in the air with clenched fists as if they’d won a trophy!!

    Didn’t they finish last in 2008??? :shock:

  • @molly (Comment 18) : i have mixed feelings about Bekker – he can sparkle sth but is he really getting down and doing the hardwork.

    I don’t think that WP was overconfident either, but Lions are very physical and can be very committed on defense. Let me stress CAN (not always happen). and earl the pearl was good last two outings so there was no player 23 for the opposition :mrgreen:

  • @rekinek (Comment 27) : He definitely can offer someting on attack, but he’s never heard of grunt work in his life. Is it a coincidence that we concede alot of penalties at scrum time at the same time Bekker makes a return?
    I can not believe they subbed Anton instead of Bekker, what a joke.

    The penalty count in the match was 6-10…3-3 in the first half and 3-7 in the second…I guess the four more that WP conceded in the 2nd half did make a bit of a difference

  • @Salmonoid (Comment 38) : in the past lions did sharks some favours – didn’t they win or denied a BP to some team so that the sharks topped the S14 log in 2007. (I guess though not such a good memory of this campaigne)

  • I can’t wait for Fondse to be back so Bekker can be relegated to the bench and become an “impact” player. I think he hit 1 ruck the whole match, fell off about 3 tackles (2 of which led to tries, although Alberts is kinda a big guy).
