Can Lions Rugby sink any deeper?

If so then they are going to the right place for that to happen. The Lions will be taking on the Griquas in Kimberley this afternoon and if they lose there is a ready made hole for them to crawl into.

The Griquas have a reputation for killing big teams in Kimberley, the Lions are not a big team so they may be safe.

Ref: Lourens van der Merwe
ARs: Jason Jaftha, Stefan Breytenbach
TMO: JC Fortuin
Venue: GWK Park, Kimberley

  • Viljoen of the Griekwas kicks the ball 70 meters, the commentators response was “just shows how stiff the wind is” and then when Herkie kicks at goal for LIONS they show the wind is in his back!??!

  • Only just watched about 5 min of this game.

    The Griquas #9 is quite useful.

    Would love to know what the picks would have been just one season ago.

    The Lions really have plummeted in performances over the last year. :(

    Lions get into the Griquas 22 all the time but then cock something up for the griquas to get out.

    Lions Just Penalised for side entry at a maul in the Griquas 22

  • Sarel pretorius does VERY well to gather a kick and get enough yards on the board before being tackled on his 10m line then his mates join from the wrong side to give the lions a PK.

    They go at goal and miss.
