  • Just a thought on this morning while watching the the Bulls – Lood de Jager left the Cheetahs, saying that he wants to join a team that plays winning rugby, then joined the Bulls…I wonder how that is working out for him???

  • It is war; the lions are due for a loss however I’m not sure it’s the Sharks that are going to fix their red wagon for them.

  • as long as the scoreline isn’t similar to stormers cheetahs – but Eish I have great difficulty being on the losing side…Let’s just get this lions bogey out the way and overcome, what i believe is a mental thing – the lions are not better than The Sharks!!! :x

    Best I’ve seen from SA teams in years. No shame in not winning this game.

    Surely AC has plenty to choose from the Sharks, Lions and Streamers to put a monster team on the field.

  • Wow what a good game. I was worried about Bosch at However if refs and TMOs have been instructed to be harsh on around the neck issues, then they better be very consistent. TMO should have overruled the ref when he judged the swinging arm tackle from the Lions as just connecting the shoulder

  • @pastorshark (Comment 146) : true, didnt think we would win before kick off, we really showed spirit. but we cant over look the moments we lost focus, EO did grab players around the neck twice, even though both times it actually didnt have a direct affect on play, terra was guilty late in the second half of that as well

    tough games ahead for us, beating the jaguares next week is key

  • nice too sell three FH options besides lambie all player really well today, was surprised how soon they replaced april with radebe but wow his radebe play well with his first touch, he was key in that move for for the try, and his tackle on RJVR around the legs late in the game was great. lions tried to run RJVR into the ten channel at all of your fh’s but we were ready

  • If only Gary gold were here tonight because this team showed real character tonight. When everything started going against us in the last 15 minutes of the 1st half I had fears we were going to fall apart. But our guys just kept in fighting. If only 1 or 2 calls went the other way this would have been a win. Just so proud of our guys.
