The second of the South African team in action this weekend, and yet another team starting their tour. The Lions have been nothing short of woeful so far this season and are again stuck on 7 consecutive losses.

The Stormers team to face the chiefs has been announced, and many Stormers supporters will be thrilled to see the return of Peter Grant, who will hopefully provide some consistency with the boot, while we have seen Lionel Cronje provide some solid attacking ball to the backs with a good few tries being scored with him in the 10 jumper, hopefully Grant will be able to carry on with that trend.
