The first of two Saturday games, and both are going to be nice competitive games. Griquas will definitely target this match as one that they will want to win, and will have the confidence to do so after drawing their opening fixture with Western Province.

The Lions eventually walked away with the win last week, but would have gotten a good wake up call in the process. The Lions do have some experience back in the form of Waylon Murray and Deon van Rensburg.

This is a very tight game to all, my head says the Lions should pull through, but the heart says the Griquas team will sneak a win here.

Griquas: 15. Riaan Viljoen, 14. Richard Lawson, 13. Wilmaure Louw, 12. Barry Geel, 11. Fabian Juries, 10. Monty Dumond, 9. Shannon Rick, 8. Jonathan Mokuena (Captain), 7. Davon Raubenheimer, 6. Justin Downey, 5. Martin Muller, 4. Hendrik Roodt, 3. Lourens Adriaanse, 2. Ryno Barnes, 1. Steph Roberts

Replacements: 16. Matthew Dobson, 17. Jean Botha, 18. Frikkie Spies, 19. Jaco Nepgen, 20. Matthew Rosslee, 21. Logan Basson, 22. Rudi Vogt

Lions: 15. Michael Killian, 14. Deon van Rensburg, 13. Waylon Murray, 12. Doppies la Grange (Captain), 11. Lionel Mapoe, 10. Burton Francis, 9. Jano Vermaak, 8. Joshua Strauss, 7. Derick Minnie, 6. Cobus Grobbelaar, 5. Franco van der Merwe, 4. Wikus van Heerden, 3. Jacobie Adriaanse, 2. Bandise Maku, 1. Pat Cilliers

Replacements: 16. Martin Bezuidenhout, 17. JC Janse van Rensburg, 18. Johan Snyman, 19. Dries van Schalkwyk, 20. Michael Bondesio, 21. Hein Cronje, 22. Alwyn Hollenbach

  • @Hmmm (Comment 89) : 6 log points? No one on the log has 6 points, what are you on about? The Sharks also have 9 log points after ALREADY playing the Bulls.

    But this is really silly to argue about the log positions after 2 rounds.

  • @Ben (Comment 91) :

    Ben Ben…please read the post before you reply…

    The Sharks + the WP played those same teams and got 6 log points in those games between them where the Lions got 9…

    WP played Griekwas and Leapards (easier not?) and only got 7 log points…

    So all I was saying do not diss the Lions log position…no team has played two of the historically top teams as yet!!

    So you have no reason to be snype guy….

    And the Lions will play Leopards next…and therefore should stay on top for another week…

  • @Hmmm (Comment 95) : Okay now I see your point. Well done, I think the Lions should get a gold medal if they are on top of the log after 3 rounds.
