The battle across the Jukskei river sees the team from the roughest city in RSA heading across the Jukskei to clash with the team from the most boring city in RSA.

While that may be close to fact, it a certainly a fact that this WILL be an exciting game. Expect a rather high scoring match with both teams allowing, on average, almost 3 tries in per match so far this season.

In yet another strange SANZAR refereeing appointment, we find a Kiwi refereeing an all South African affair. πŸ™

  • The Lions are this season’s neutral supporters choice. Lots of action and entertainment. I’m a Taute fan, but I really like seeing Michael Killian at fullback. I think he’s got so much to offer as an attacking player esp when he’s given a bit of room and licence to drift around.

  • @KSA Shark Β© (Comment 86) : Crazy I tell you.

    When they had no tries on the board at the beginning of the match they go for the line out instead of 3 points. I can only assume they wanted the 4 try bonus.

    Then that decision at the end. πŸ™„

    Maybe he was tired.

    Looked like the kid who brought the ball and then decides to go home, with the ball, when everybody else still wants to play. :mrgreen:
