Lions U20 Welcome DHL WP U20 to the Park

The two teams last met in the 2021 final of the competition which saw the home team clinch a 36-35 victory over their coastal visitors.

Defending SA Rugby U20 Cup champions, Lions U20 will host DHL WP 20 in the SA Rugby U20 Cup at Emirates Airline Park on Friday, 11 March.

The two teams last met in the 2021 final of the competition which saw the home team clinch a 36-35 victory over their coastal visitors.

Fresh from their hard­-fought win in Potchefstroom last week, the Lions U20 are hoping for a hat-trick of victories in this year’s junior competition.

Lions U20 Breakdown Specialist, Philip Lemmer.

“We’re pretty upbeat for tomorrow. It’s new-look team from last year’s championship side, so we’re pretty excited ahead of this encounter,” says Lemmer.

“The main thing for us tomorrow is to do what we do well. Paramount to that is that we put in as much effort as we can to ensure we outwork the opposition. That for us is key in taking the game away from them.”

Kick-off is at 13:00
