  • mufasa62 : Hi Guys, I do not agree with you about Boshoff. I think he have the experience and he can also play the running game as was proofed in the CC. His kicking to poles is also very good. I we select a youngster and he cant handle the pressure, we will be in trouble, just my 2c
  • Willa : Thats what I would do. Reward loyalty and send a message to the youngsters that form will get an opportunity. Thats what any young rugby player wants to know.
  • Lion4ever : Agree with that statement, Willa. It will be typical of JA, to pull something like this off.
  • Willa : If Ackerman selects Boshoff, we're going to have to abandon our running game. Play safe, percentage rugby. Territory and take points on offer. If he selects an unknown, this might work in our favour. The Bulls will not know what to expect. With Bossie moving, I'd put faith in a youngster. He will have enough experience around him.

  • LV : Hey lawwe leeu, I'm personally not on any social media, but I believe that Ed is quite vocal. But I do believe that this is something that we should be looking into. Thanks.
  • lawwe leeu : HI LV and Baylion are you guys on twitter ? I would like to engage with you there as well
  • Ed_the_Lion : @Groot Leeu, ESPN is streaming it this year.
  • Mr-T : That is what I am doing, streaming on Supersport. Think it about R80 extra a month.(May be wrong)
  • Lion4ever : Groot Leeu, best bet is to stream. If you have someone this side who can give you their details, you can stream via Supersport.
  • Groot Leeu : Hi guys, I live in Finland and would really like to watch the game. Does anyone know how I can make that happen?

  • Lion4ever : Season tickets in my hand. looking forward to the season.
  • LV : And of course John Mitchell is now Head Coach of USA. That I believe will work well. Give the Yanks some credit, they are professionals and will probably embrace Mitchell's style... for the first 4 years...
  • LV : I see that Jacobie Adriaanse has joined the Kings. I haven't seen him play in a while. I wonder how that will work out for the both of them. Probably quite well under the circumstances I suspect.

The Lions thumped the Bulls – Whoop Whoop!

The Lions continued to be spurred on by their loss to the Hurricanes as they totally demolished the Bulls in their own back garden.

Since the loss to the Canes the Lions have become more focused and more clinical without losing anything on the attack. In fact, with the new focus came an improvement in their execution as they scored 22 tries in their last three games while only conceding six.


Bok and SA A Squads. Congrats guys!

Congratulations to the Lions players who were named in the Bok and SA A squads. Fully deserved. and congratulations to coach Johan Ackermann for being appointed to coach the SA A side


Bulls vs Lions Trans-Jukskei Derby with Oomph

Super Rugby is getting into the knock-out phases just before the break for the winter tests and for the South African conferences the Trans-Jukskei derby between the Bulls and the Lions could very well determine who goes through to the quarter finals.

The result of this match impacts on all four contenders.


Injuries Change the Playing Field

It’s been confirmed, Elton Jantjies has a fractured finger and requires surgery and will be out of action for 4 weeks. This obviously has implications to an all but certain Springbok call up, but will also force Coach Ackerman to re – think his team for Saturday.


Lions Treat the Faithful Once Again

For the second week running, the Lions put on a show and wowed their spectators and TV audiences with another stunning exhibition of skills and flare. It seems that the disaster against the Hurricanes, now a distant memory, was possibly the best thing to have happened, for since then the team has scored almost 100 points, conceded less than 30, accumulated 10 log points and has climbed ahead of all other South African teams on both conferences. 


Lions vs Jaguares: Match Preview

With the elation of last week’s thrashing of the Auckland Blues still fresh, the Lions will be seeking to emulate their form against the visiting Jaguares on Saturday. Whether it will be another 40 points + margin is yet to be seen, but with the kind of mood the players appear to be in, I would not be looking forward to the trans-Atlantic trip if I was an Argentinian Rugby player.


About Elton Jantjies

First off, great news that Ruan Combrinck extended his contract with the Lions until 2018.

But Elton Jantjies is in the form of his life and the media is on the bandwagon


The Lions beat the Blues

It was like chalk and cheese. The game the Lions played to defeat the Blues bore no resemblance to the game they played when the were thumped by the Hurricanes two weeks ago.

The kicks that broke the Blues:


Lions vs Blues: Match Preview

Whatever happened against the Hurricanes two week ago is now irrelevant and whatever the Blues did to the Kings in Port Elizabeth last Saturday, even more so. This match is simply a “Must win” for the Lions and they need to do whatever it takes to see it done.


Sharks Show us How to do it

The comparisons between how the Sharks approached their fixture against the Hurricanes and how the Lions did was quite alarming and a little worrying.
