So the fourth game of the day has the Force hosting the Lions, and this should be an interesting scrap at the bottom of the log…

I’ve lost most reader already. In a day with six matches, this might be the one you skip in order to go do some shopping, refill the beer and biltong stock or maybe even mow the lawn.

Both teams are crap, this will only indicate which is actually worse, and nobody really cares anyway.

Western Force: 1. Pek Cowan, 2. Nathan Charles, 3. Salesi Ma’afu, , 4. Toby Lynn, 5. Nathan Sharpe, 6. Matt Hodgson, 7. David Pocock, 8. Ben McCalman, 9. Brett Sheehan, 10. Ben Seymour, 11. Napolioni Nalaga, 12. Rory Sidey, 13. Will Tupou, 14. Nick Cummins, 15. Alfie Mafi

Replacements : 16. Elvis Taione, 17. Salesi Manu, 18. Phoenix Battye, 19. Richard Brown, , 20. Lachlan McCaffrey, 21. Josh Holmes, 22. David Harvey

Lions: 15 Andries Coetzee , 14 Deon Van Rensburg , 13 Lionel Mapoe , 12 Jaco Taute , 11 Michael Killian , 10 Elton Jantjies , 9 Tian Meyer , 8 Joshua Strauss (c) , 7 Grant Hattingh , 6 Derick Minnie , 5 Ruan Botha , 4 Franco Van der Merwe , 3 Patric Cilliers , 2 Callie Visagie , 1 CJ Van der Linde

  • Biggest joke of the season. Aussie commentators said the Lions have some pace out wide. Have they SEEN Deon van Rensburg? My grandmother is faster

  • Surely the Kings can´t be worse than this lot. Poor John Mitchell went from the frying pan into the fire when he took on the Lions job. Now holds the Super rugby record as worst coach.

  • @robdylan (Comment 38) :

    I think only the Rebels and Force maiden Super Rugby teams were worse….and they had the excuse that it their first years…lol

    This side is an embarrassment for rugby…for South Africa…and for humans in general…
