The weekend of rugby concludes with a match that, I must be honest here, doesn’t particularly excite me. But for those Lions supporters on the site that I can actually stomach, please see below my best attempt at being inspirational.

The Lions have come so close over the last few weeks and will want to put all those close calls behind them and finally close up a game with a win. This might be their ideal opportunity, seeing as the Chiefs have traveled quite a bit in the last week and the Lions are putting forward a somewhat fresh team.

The Chiefs have had a really bad season so far, with a win here and there but nothing really to write home about, and thy themselves have little to play for in the form of chances to make the play offs.

The Lions, I hope, will be able to prove too strong for a tired Chiefs team and finally bag a home win.

Lions: 15. Michael Killian, 14. Lionel Mapoe, 13. Waylon Murray, 12. Doppies la Grange (Captain), 11. Deon van Rensburg, 10. Burton Francis, 9. Jano Vermaak, 8. Warren Whiteley, 7. Michael Rhodes, 6. Cobus Grobbelaar, 5. Franco van der Merwe, 4. Wikus van Heerden, 3. Jacobie Adriaanse, 2. Martin Bezuidenhout, 1. JC Janse van Rensburg

Replacements: 16. Edgar Marutlulle, 17. Pat Cilliers, 18. David de Villiers, 19. Joshua Strauss, 20. Rory Kockott, 21. Elton Jantjies, 22. Jaco Taute

Chiefs: TBC

  • This Bye system really works well. The Stormers have already had both their Byes and the Lions haven’t had one yet. 😕

  • The lions certainly seem up for this game.

    still 0-0 but it is being played at a hectic pace and the Lions are doing damn well.

  • Jaco Taute should not be on the Lions bench, in fact he should not be in the Lions team at all. He should be at the Sharks.
