The Lion King – The Final Curtain


Written by Iza Loubser (Ice)

Posted in :Admin, EP Kings, In the news, Lions, Original Content on 11 Feb 2011 at 09:13

In the final LionKing saga to take place tonight in Port Elizabeth, John Mitchell has chosen a team very similar to the one that beat UJ about a week ago.

With the start of Superrugby only a week away and kick off of the Vodacom cup shortly thereafter, it seems Mitchell has given his main cubs some time-off.

Marius Delport will be at fullback for the second time, Chavanga and Noble will be flying in the wings and Joubert Engelbrecht at inside centre  will partner Jannie Boshoff in midfield.

The front row of Wayne Swart, Edgar Maratlulle and Ross Geldenhuys will have to lay the platform, Robert Kruger, Michael Rhodes and promising Jaco Kriel will start as the loose-trio combination.

Flyhalf Hein Cronje will combine with Vice-Captain JP Joubert as the halfback combination.

Captain David Bullbring and Johan Snyman will form the second row, with Jonathan Mokeuna listed as replacement lock.

Lions squad to face the Kings:

Lions: Marius Delport, Tonderai Chavhanga, Jannie Boshoff, Joubert Engelbrecht, Dusty Noble, Hein Cronjé, JP Joubert, Robert Kruger, Michael Rhodes, Jaco Kriel, David Bullbring (capt), Johan Snyman, Ross Geldenhuys, Edgar Marutlulle, Wayne Swart. Substitutes: Thurston Zimri, Caylib Oosthuizen, Jonathan Mokuena, Renaldo Bothma, Vian van der Watt, Maritz Hoffman, Ruan Dreyer, Ruan Venter, Dale Sabbagh.

Southern Kings: Tiger Mangweni, Norman Nelson, Siyanda Grey, Wayne Stevens, Paul Perez, Jaco van Schalkwyk, Jacques Coetzee, Morné Hanekom, Mpho Mbiyozo, Darron Nell, Ross Kennedy, Rory Duncan (capt), André Schlechter, Hannes Franklin, Ronnie Uys Substitutes: Bobby Dyer, Jaco Engels, Barend Pieterse, Boetie Brits, Boela Abrahams, Monty Dumond, Milo Nqoro, Sphephelo Mayaba, Pumlani Nodikita, Lungelo Payi, Nolan Clark, Frank Herne, Matthew Tayler-Smith.

  • Ruan Venter was one of THE best schoolboy rugby players last year. I can see him going on to become the next Bakkies Botha in a few years time. He oozes potential.

  • Don’t worry. The Lions won’t be a threat this year. Just a very honest team that will keep you teams playing until the 80th minute. A good Lions team is good for SA.

  • as this is a sharks biased site, why don’t we give the sharks their full 80 points up front. put them on top of the log. then if the sharks don’t get a bonus point in a game you subtract one, 2/3 if it is a draw and 4/5 if they lose. at least then we can feel good about our team as they always top the log in our books. :lol: :lol:
