The Lions continued with their fine start to the season when they claimed a deserved 36-32 victory over the Chiefs in Hamilton on Saturday.

The win was an historical one for the men from Johnnesburg as it was their first ever triumph over the Chiefs in Hamilton.

As the scorline suggests, this was an entertaining affair with the the two sides scoring four tries apiece but, in the end, it was the Chiefs’ poor discipline which cost them the match as they conceded a plethora of soft penalties.

Although the entire Lions team deserve credit for this result, their halfbacks, Faf de Klerk and Elton Jantjies deserve special praise, for their game management which set up victory.

The duo controlled proceedings for large periods with impressive decision-making and Jantjies finished with a 16-point haul via four penalties and two conversions.
