Most likely the Currie Cup game of the weekend, as the Lions host Western Province at Coca-Cola Park in Johanesburg. The Lions could well wrap up the top spot on the log with a win today, and a Western Province victory would keep hope alive for a Durban final and a spot in the play-offs for themselves.

The Lions have pretty much a full side with little injury concern and will hope to wrap up that home semi and potential home final before having to travel to Durban next weekend.

Western Province on the other hand, have a few players returning from injury, with Catrakilis handed the flyhalf jersey in hope to continue the good form he showed before injuring himself. The confidence should also be high after their victory against the Sharks in Durban.

Lions: 15 Jaco Taute, 14 Deon van Rensburg, 13 Doppies la Grange, 12 Alwyn Hollenbach, 11 Michael Killian, 10 Elton Jantjies, 9 Michael Bondesio, 8 Warren Whiteley, 7 Joshua Strauss (captain), 6 Derick Minnie, 5 Franco van der Merwe, 4 Michael Rhodes, 3 Patric Cilliers, 2 Bandise Maku, 1 JC Janse van Rensburg.

Replacements: 16 Martin Bezuidenhout, 17 Jacobie Adriaanse, 18 David Bulbring, 19 Jaco Kriel, 20 Burton Francis, 21 Dylan des Fountain, 22 James Kamana.

Western Province: 15. Conrad Jantjes, 14. Danie Poolman, 13. Berton Klaasen, 12. Marcel Brache, 11. JJ Engelbrecht, 10. Demetri Catrakilis, 9. Nick Groom, 8. Nick Koster, 7. Siya Kolisi, 6. Nick Fenton-Wells, 5. De Kock Steenkamp, 4. Adriaan Fondse, 3. Brok Harris, 2. Tiaan Liebenberg (Captain), 1. JC Kritzinger

Replacements: 16. Deon Fourie, 17. Frans Malherbe, 18. Hilton Lobberts, 19. Nizaam Carr, 20. Pieter Louw, 21. Louis Schreuder, 22. Johann Sadie

  • With the Bulls loss to the Griquas, a win here will seal a semi-final place for the white and blue. And with the return of our young Spartan, we can give the Lions a real challenge.

    Onward, for death or glory!

    no, thats just how I refer to him.

    Anyway, a dissapointing result, given that we made so many attacks. Should perhaps have gone for the try a few times. A good showing nonetheless by our boys, especially young Demetri, good to see that he hasn’t lost his touch. The Pumas should be little danger at home and the Bulls and Griquas won’t catch us.

    A little upset that the Lions didnt get pinged for a lift tackle when we did, but overall a good reffing performance.

    Finally, well done to the Lions, you deserved the win, but you had better hope that the Boks win tommorow, because the returning Boks will have a massive impact come the finals.

    Better what …bring all the Boks back please !

    I’d rather we won beating “all the boks” blah blah ..

    Well played Lions and WP can hold their head up high .. u guys certainly have alot of depth and look good going forward.

    Well, you’ll get your wish if we stumble in Wellington tommorow.
    Personally, I’d rather see WP out of semi contention if it meant beating the Aussies. With our injury list I’m proud of the boys for making it this far. Still, after losing some of our young players to the Bulls, I will get some measure of satisfaction seeing them out of contention.
