The Mastercard Golden Lions will kick-off their First Division tournament when they take on the Limpopo Blue Bulls on Saturday in Polokwane.
“While the cancellation is unfortunate, their approach ensures that the risk of cancellation of their match against the British & Irish Lions in the Castle Lager Lions Series on 3 July is well managed.”
The Lions’ first try, in the tenth minute by Andre Warner, saw the scrumhalf take a quick tap and go when he saw the gap and went for it. And it was just reward for the men in red who camped out on the Sharks goal line from the outset of the game.
Going into their third home game in this competition, the Lions will take inspiration from their last performance on home soil. A look at the stats from the tournament highlight two Lions players who have had sterling performances. EW Viljoen is second on the list with his 43 carries, just one behind the 44 of Damian Willemse, while MJ Pelser, together with Lukhanyo Am are the turn-over kings with their four each.
As players, we challenge one another to get better, and I can learn a lot from all the players in our team. Team always first.
Morné Ferreira has been appointed as the referee for the final of the Varsity Cup that takes place later today.
Treviso’s Stadio di Monigo will play host to the Guinness PRO14 Rainbow Cup ‘North v South’ Final on June 19 thanks to the support of the Federazione Italiana Rugby (FIR) and the Italian government.
The Lion’s front-row again reigned supreme and controlled most of the battles upfront and in the loose. This set up the platform from which their four tries were scored.
“Consistency is the main thing for us; consistency in training, consistency in attitude and consistency in team selection. We are facing the team at the top of the log and it will be tough. We have a lot of respect for the Bulls,” said Van Rooyen.
