  • Rob, the Lions have a subsite (ticket office) at Computicket which seems not to be accessible through the normal site (silly). The tickets are at this link

  • @Southern_Shark (Comment 3) : From the Lions:

    Andries Coetzee suffered a medial cruciate ligament tear (knee) and will be out for approximately six weeks. Loan lock Rudi Mathee has also been ruled out for eight weeks after fracturing his arm.

    Three Lions players recovering from shoulder injuries, namely Elton Jantjies, Anthony Volmink and Ruan Dreyer, are all making good progress and are expected to return to action within three weeks.

  • @robdylan (Comment 8) : I would think either Martin Muller or Franco Mostert, both having just come back from long term injuries. Not sure what happened to Ruan Venter, he was in the practice squad but hasn’t played in any of the warm-ups

  • @Baylion (Comment 9) : Muller isn’t a 4, though. Mostert has potential
