  • @Leeubok (Comment 1) : I don’t know half of these players – and when it comes to the Lions, that just makes me even more nervous :)

  • A large number of these guys played super rugby this season. The only players we’ve lost between super rugby and currie cup are jantjies (japan), Tecklenburg (japan), hond (France), and then the 4 boks who probably won’t make the WC squad. So the Lions should go into the CC with a very settled team

  • Hopefully this game will be a cracker with the Lions bringing down such a strong squad.
    Will be great to have live rugby in PMB again.

    Anyone else going?

  • @Baylion (Comment 16) : Probably lacking an out and out fullback unless Combrinck or Boshoff play there. Also interesting who will be reserve scrummy and hooker.

  • @vanmartin (Comment 15) : Just remember, with great power comes great responsibility. In lieu of that, I expect you, with immediate effect, to endorse the Bulls, England and Australia (all sporting codes), Man United, Beyonce, Dan Brown, SA Breweries and Spur Steak Ranches. I know I can depend on you to do the right thing.

  • Should be a cracker of a game with the young guys out to impress, the only problem will be a bit of rustiness and lack of cohesion, but still a good run-out, seriously tempted to make the trip from Durbs.

  • @Culling Song (Comment 28) : Spur has that parents with young children market so well cornered. Whoever dreamt up the idea of combining colouring books, jungle gyms, Playstations and build-your-own-waffles with a family restaurant must be enjoying a lifetime supply of Nachos and pink sauce at the moment. We are lucky though as we have choices. We can decide between the few hundred branches of Spur in Centurion and Pretoria. I pity the parents whose only choice is the Spur in Pofadder with that one waiter that has the crazy eyes.
