At Emirates Airlines Park in Johannesburg on Saturday in front of a crowd of close to 20 000, the Emirates Lions showed glimpses of the splendid form which carried them to the 2016 final when they ran in eight tries to outscore the Waratahs by 55-36.
Burly midfielder Johan Janse van Rensburg, the young Springbok centre who chose to play in the match after his mother passed away earlier in the week, scored two tries for a second time in a row. He dotted down the winning try last week in Bloemfontein.
The whole dedicatedbthis game to Janse van Rensburg’ mother Renthia, who passed away this week due to cancer.
The Emirates Lions travel to Argentina this week to take on the Jaguares.
