S15 Game 85 – Brumbies (20) vs Lions (29) F/T

The second of the South African team in action this weekend, and yet another team starting their tour. The Lions have been nothing short of woeful so far this season and are again stuck on 7 consecutive losses. The team sees another captain take charge in Josh Strauss, and with new combinations all over the park, I cannot see them scaring the Brumbies.

The Brumbies are back in Australia after their tour of South Africa, losing both games on the tour, and will be looking to get back into the winning rhythm in front of their crowd. I personally think they will stroll past a hapless Lions side and win comfortably, by at least 20 points.

Kick off is at 11h40.

Brumbies: 15. Pat McCabe, 14. Andrew Smith, 13. Tyrone Smith, 12. Christian Lealiifano, 11. Adam Ashley-Cooper, 10. Matt Giteau (Captain), 9. Josh Valentine, 8. Ita Vaea, 7. Colby Faingaa, 6. Mitchell Chapman, 5. Ben Hand, 4. Peter Kimlin, 3. Jono Owen, 2. Stephen Moore, 1. Ben Alexander

Replacements: 16. Huia Edmonds, 17. Salesi Ma’afu, 18. Mark Chisholm, 19. Michael Hooper, 20. Patrick Phibbs, 21. Robbie Coleman, 22. Henry Speight

Lions: 15. Jaco Taute, 14. Lionel Mapoe, 13. Dylan Des Fountain, 12. Alwyn Hollenbach, 11. Deon van Rensburg, 10. Elton Jantjies, 9. Jano Vermaak, 8. Joshua Strauss (Captain), 7. Michael Rhodes, 6. Derick Minnie, 5. Franco van der Merwe, 4. Wikus van Heerden, 3. Pat Cilliers, 2. Edgar Marutlulle, 1. JC Janse van Rensburg

Replacements: 16. Bandise Maku, 17. Kevin Buys, 18. Warren Whiteley, 19. Cobus Grobbelaar, 20. Rory Kockott, 21. Burton Francis, 22. Butch James

  • Missed the try!

    Look at how these unspectacular Lions forwards are getting over the gain line – just going in pods of 2 and 3.

    You don’t need superstars to make that work – but the Sharks don’t use it enough.

    Very encouraging play from the Lions so far.

    All in good spirit mate.

    Jantjies has looked so good. I think the real difference tonight has been the confidence and calm he has played with.

    Lambie is the more rounded, dependable and better on defence, but this kid is probably more elusive.

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 86) :
    Not sure how you conclude that – Butch didn’t look shabby at all.

    But the reason I can’t understand why the Lions would want Frans Steyn AND Butch is that the latter can play 10 or 12.

    If Jantjies stay at 10, they have Butch for 12. If Jantjies is out of form, Butch at 10 and Doppies at 12.

    With Taute at 15, where would you play Frans?

    I think Butch will be very good at 12.

  • RESPECT to the forwards they won us this game in particular. Strauss,Minnie and Wickus..also very chuffed for young Jantjies awesome game!

    Perhaps the Lions should base themselves In Aus next year ..

    Well done ..! Its a start but a very very long way from what is expected overall.

  • Well done Lions, great win. That has broken my SB streak.. The way things are going today the Bulls are heading for a loss and the Cheetahs for a win.

  • AND WITH THAT THE LAST MAN STANDING COMPETITION COMES TO AN END.

    OUR WINNER IS FLEETFOOTMAC.

    Although all 4 our remaining entrants picked the Brumbies, Fleetfootmac was fleet footed with his/her picks and courtesy of the timestamp tiebreak is a COMFORTABLE winner.

    Congratulations. We will be in touch shortly for you prize details.

  • These Brumbies are going to make Jake White look so good next season.

    Jake will take these guys from less than 30% victories in 2011 to 60%plus in 2012.

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 98) : Been mentioned a few times by Fish. Must be something only you Sharks fans get. ;-)

    Makes no sense as I’ve never mentioned a trophy or even mentioned the Stormers as potential trophy winners.

    Plus when your side has also not won a single super rugby trophy, such a chirp seems rather silly imo. :twisted:
