The Lions u20s looked sharp as they claimed their second victory of the tournament

The biggest result of the weekend came in Johannesburg on Friday afternoon. The Lions not only secured a four-try bonus point win at Emirates Airline Park, but they also managed to keep the Cell C Sharks from gaining any log points from the trip, a result that saw the Durbanites drop out of the top four.

Things were still pretty even at the break, with both teams scoring two tries to tie at 12-all, but the second half proved the big difference in the result. The Lions backline got the upper hand over their opponents and claimed two more tries, while the visitors could only respond with a penalty goal.

Scorers:

Lions 27 (12), Cell C Sharks 15 (12)

Lions – Tries: Jacques-Louis du Toit, Ngia Selengbe, Indiphile Tyeda, Quan Horn. Conversions: Jurich Claasens (2). Penalty goal: Claasens.

Cell C Sharks – Tries: Jacques Goosen (2). Conversion: Brandon Wilkie. Penalty goal: Wilkie.
