The Western Force have traveled to South Africa to take on the Lions.

The Lions finally managed their 1st Super Rugby win since May 2009 last weekend. The Lions will be buoyed by this and the fact that the Western Force are winless this season should see this being a close game.

Lions by 5-10 points after an almighty tussle.

  • I have to say the difference between Guy Cronje and Lambie is huge. Lambie is far better and if he stays at the sharks. I can’t really see a future for Guy at the Sharks.

  • @Speed7 (Comment 33) : The Force should be further ahead with all the possesion they have.

    Lions soaking up the pressure and may use it to their advantage later.

  • If a stat of penalties given away divided by time on the park was kept then Kevin Buy would surely be the runaway lead. Boy does he have poor self disciple.

  • The Lions flatter to deceive…
    Elton Jantjies got booed sure, but the fans are irritated, upset, frustrated and rightfully pissed off, the weather was kak and they braved it to support their men… Emotion is not a rational thing – Prince Elton is not SupeRugby ready – finished… They need Butch James quickly… Elton Jantjies is the swingvote that either costs them the game, or just sneaks them (one) victory.

    Back to school, back to reality…
