Lionel takes one to the jaw

Let me start by quashing the inevitable rumours…. nobody within the Sharks squad payed Ryan Cross to break Lionel Mapoe’s jaw this past weekend. Or rather, nobody will admit to doing so. I guess serendipity works like that sometimes…

Only kidding, of course! It’s time to let bygones be bygones and we’re never really that pleased when a fellow South African gets injured. Or something.

Anyway, the upshot of this development is that Mapoe will miss the rest of the Lions’ tour down under – and probably the rest of the Super Rugby season – with his place in the tour party going to the ever-reliable Michael Killian. The Lions face the Highlanders in Dunedin this weekend in the third match of their tour. They beat the Brumbies in week 1, before going down badly to the Waratahs in Sydney.

  • The lions will do the SA teams a massive favour if they can beat the Highlanders. Unlikely but possible. One can always hope…
