S15 Game 14 – Stormers (19) v Lions (16) F/T

Tagged with : , , ,

The Stormers start their season with a derby against the resurgent Lions.

The Lions will be high on confidence after their good display against the Bulls last weekend. The Stormers are fielding a few inexperienced players and those two facts coupled together could make this a very exciting and unpredictable game.

Sticking my neck out here. Lions to win by a reasonable margin.

  • @csb (Comment 43) : True but if it comes down to the wire and you lose buy 3 it’s not going to do Jantjies confidence any good. Many people expect Jantjies and Lambie to kick 80% but they are still young,I wonder what % Steyn was kicking when he was 20.

  • @bergshark (Comment 152) : Ditto. Minnie and Strauss… sounds like a two-bit cop drama from the 80s! Sad that the Lions snatched defeat from the jaws of victory again though, and have to agree that Jantjies needs to sharpen up his kicking boots. I know there was a problem with his conditioning after the off season, and to be honest I don’t think he looks that impressive physically. A bit stodgy and slow. Lack of fitness could be hampering his overall performance. Not that I mind, particularly, as I wear the Black and White with pride!!!
