If you are a fan of high scoring matches with many tries by one side then this will certainly be a match worth getting up early for.

The Crusaders may have had a hiccup aganst the Reds in round 4 but they got right back on track last week and will in all likelyhood continue on track this weekend.

The Lions went “ton up” in the Points different column last week and for that to happen after just round 5 has to be a concern.

  • Doppies and Todd Clever have been pretty good do far this season. The reserve scrummie (Coetzee?) gets the backline away quite well. Mjekevu may have some potential. Deon van Rensburg was solid (I assume he is injured) early on in the season. Baywatch as usual never gives up. Minnie not to bad.
    The rest of them pretty average.

  • What can be said about the Lions…..they rank at about u/16 level today.

    Refereeing very poor at the breakdown again, but not even a saffa ref could’ve saved them.

  • @Chaz (Comment 32) :

    who the Kings ? ..aren’t they due next year ..?

    Before home games u have the Hurricanes to deal with away ..a very good chance considering they return from SA .. they have it so easy though ..no time difference all tour.

    Sharks are in with a fair chance.

    PS : LIONS 2 beat the landers and win all home games and make 4th spot ;-)
