The second game of the morning sees the Lions, fresh off their scrappy win over the Brumbies take on play off contenders the Waratahs in Sydney. All of South Africa will be hoping for a second straight win for the Lions, but that is rather unlikely.

The Waratahs re still without their on/off captain Phil Waugh has seems to always be injured these days, but the ret of the team is built around a core group of players that have not been amazing so far this season, but have done the job reasonably well enough to stake a claim in the play offs.

The Lions have opted to start with new recruit Butch James at flyhalf and drop to the bench probably their most influential player from the win over the Brumbies, Elton Jantjies. Butch is certain to add a different element to the flyhalf position, and it will be interesting to see how he goes against Barnes.

Kick off is at 11h40.

Waratahs – 15 Kurtley Beale, 14 Lachie Turner, 13 Ryan Cross, 12 Tom Carter, 11 Sosene Anesi, 10 Berrick Barnes, 9 Luke Burgess, 8 Ben Mowen, 7 Chris Alcock, 6 Dave Dennis, 5 Sitaleki Timani, 4 Dean Mumm (c), 3 Sekope Kepu, 2 Tatafu Polota-Nau, 1 Benn Robinson.
Subs: 16 Damien Fitzpatrick, 17 Al Baxter, 18 Kane Douglas, 19 Hugh Perrett, 20 Brendan McKibbin, 21 Daniel Halangahu, 22 Tom Kingston.

Lions – 15 Jaco Taute, 14 Lionel Mapoe, 13 Alwyn Hollenbach, 12 Doppies la Grange (c), 11 Deon van Rensburg, 10 Butch James, 9 Jano Vermaak, 8 Joshua Strauss, 7 Michael Rhodes, 6 Derick Minnie, 5 Franco van der Merwe, 4 Wikus van Heerden, 3 Patric Cilliers, 2 Bandise Maku, 1 JC Janse van Rensburg.
Subs: 16 Edgar Marutlulle, 17 Jacobie Adriaanse, 18 Warren Whiteley, 19 Cobus Grobbelaar, 20 Rory Kockott, 21 Elton Jantjies, 22 Dylan des Fountain.

  • Tahs to win.

    Had a meeting with the fans this week and the fans are not happy.

    Expect them to come out and prove a point today.

  • @McLovin (Comment 1) : you’re saying the Tahs met with their fans?

    Shit, that’s revolutionary. Not like the Sharks who like to sell stuff to their fans but otherwise would prefer them to not exist!

  • Hi People – just some useless trivia – and perhaps you people knew this – I sure did not – Willem Alberts’ sister is Deon Stegmanns’ wife! Talk about being torn in two – I hope blood is thicker than water! πŸ˜†

    Don’t you think that is a bit harsh??
    I have had plenty of good vibes from the Sharks, players as well as their P.R.O.dept.
    Maybe it depends on ones attitude?
