  • @walter van Lions World (Comment 6) : eish. And you have the great Justin Botha at flyhalf… he was touted on various rugby blogs as the saviour of Sharks rugby not too long ago.

  • @Hertford Highlander (Comment 15) : They are about the same…Pumas supposed to be weaker as they only got promoted to the top section at the end of last season so it’s their first season back in top Currie Cup section

  • @walter van Lions World (Comment 17) : Really….

    ….. i’m sure Mitchell can make an impact with the Lions. I use to hear that he was a bit of an idiot when he coached the AB’s.

    …but i think he has done an admirable job this year with the Force.

    ….i have included a couple of them in my FL Side that’s how confident i am :cool:

  • @walter van Lions World (Comment 19) : They had a bad string of injuries well terrible really.

    But they played some excellent footy at the tail end of the season when they got their first stringers back.

    Played well to beat Stormers, Crusaders and the …..Highlanders !
