  • I was looking forward to go to watch the game until the Lions sent in a second team. Jake can use tonight to work out some quirks in the scrums and loose play.

  • @robdylan (Comment 15) : Anything is possible. Maybe we can win 4 games this here. All jokes aside. The Lions don’t have the deph to consistantly compete at Super Rugby level with the likes of the Sharks, Brumbies, Crusaders, but what we do have is young players and journey men that are able to compete at Vodacom Cup level. Vodacom Cup will be a great oppertunity to get the young players confidence up and build on our deph

  • Lwazi made a line-break after the line-out and the ball went through the entire backline before Odwa dotted down in the far corner for the easiest of tries.

    Ref is being wheeled off

  • Sharks win back ball on kick-off. A bit of back and forth kicking ensues with the Lions getting a line-out feed. They push the ball through the backline but pass directly out.

    @GreatSharksays (Comment 184) : Jordaan didn’t get many opportunities but made a decent break and helped with SP’s grubber. He also ensured Odwa got quick ball for his first try. There’s still rust but he’s improving.

    @Baylion (Comment 190) : My sentiments too. Hope it didn’t give their confidence too bad a dent.

  • @vanmartin (Comment 185) : how did they play, focussed and purposeful like they mean business or were the Lions just beyond poor?

  • @Ludz (Comment 193) : Sithole scored twice and was my man of the second half. He spilled once that I recall but was a joy to behold at 13. If he can keep playing like that against tougher opposition we have a NZ style 13 in our hands. Defense is another consideration of course but he played with a determination I haven’t seen before.

    @pierre_mackie (Comment 194) : I mention this in my match report. The Lions were poor (I’ve seen poorer though) but Sharks teams of old would not have capitalised in the way this team did and kept the momentum after 11 players were subbed in the second half.
