The final match this Saturday is a South African derby match between the Lions and the Stormers, played at Coca Cola Park. The Lions have been ravaged by a spate of injuries, while the Stormers have enjoyed a good start to the season.

The Lions have plastered together a team from what they have available after 11 of their first choice players have succumbed to injury. Pat Cilliers is back for the Lions though, and will add some grunt to the front row, which will be needed against a strong Stormers scrumming outfit.

For the Stormers, we see an unchanged team from the one that beat the Blues in Cape Town last Friday, and they will look to continue where they left off and remain on top of the local conference.

Lions: 15 James Kamana, 14 Deon van Rensburg, 13 Jaco Taute, 12 Doppies la Grange, 11 Andries Coetzee, 10 Butch James, 9 Tian Meyer, 8 Warren Whiteley, 7 Joshua Strauss (captain), 6 Derick Minnie, 5 Franco van der Merwe, 4 Marius Coetzer, 3 Patric Cilliers, 2 Callie Visagie, 1 Caylib Oosthuizen

Substitutes: 16 Martin Bezuidenhout, 17 Jacobie Adriaanse, 18 Stephan Greeff, 19 Cobus Grobbelaar, 20 Ross Cronje, 21 Michael Killian, 22 Ruan Combrinck

Stormers: 15. Johan Pietersen, 14. Gio Aplon, 13. Juan de Jongh, 12. Jean de Villiers (Captain), 11. Bryan Habana, 10. Peter Grant, 9. Dewaldt Duvenage, 8. Nick Koster, 7. Duane Vermeulen, 6. Siya Kolisi, 5. Andries Bekker, 4. Eben Etzebeth, 3. Brok Harris, 2. Tiaan Liebenberg, 1. Steven Kitshoff

Replacements: 16. Siyabonga Ntubeni, 17. Frans Malherbe, 18. De Kock Steenkamp, 19. Nizaam Carr, 20. Louis Schreuder, 21. Gary Van Aswegen, 22. Gerhard van den Heever

  • What…a…game!

    Big relief from down here in Cape Town of course, but massive respect to the Lions who pushed us to the brink. I do hope SARU and the EP Kings are watching this.

    Still, not many teams can make a hundred and twenty tackles, concede twice the penalties, and still take home the win.

    Hail the Iron Wall of Cape Town!

    To be honest Sharks should have beaten the Stormers at Newlands, only the Sharks discipline let us down.

    I never saw this game yesterday but was really surprised to see the score. Thought Stormers would have beaten a depleted Lions side by a lot more. So credit to the Lions for keeping that score close and not allowing Stormers a bonus point…. :razz:

  • Sharks doing okay so far. Sure we have lost 3 that we could have won, but in all the games we lost we have picked up a bonus point. So strictly speaking if we add on our bye points that Stormers and Bulls have received so far then we sitting 3 points from Bulls and 4 from Stormers.

    The bonus points we collected are keeping us at striking range at the moment. From here we need to start winning more away from home to make up some ground.

  • So it is essential now that Sharks beat all the saffa sides especially the Bulls and Stormers at the tank. We lose to any there and that will probably be us out of the play offs.
