There is nothing like playing the Lions if you’re a side that seriously needs a confidence boost. Nothing.
Without a doubt, the Lions have the laziest players in the competition. To tell you how frustrated I am with the Lions’ forwards, would cause me to ban myself from this website. Our cleaning ability and aggression is worthless. Our tight five is weak, lazy and uncommitted. And this spills to the backline’s ability to create and find themselves in space.
Guys and girls, the truth is we are absolutely shocking. We lack basic skills that any 10 year old should have. My sons Bulletjie side has more handling skills than some of the players we call professionals.
The commitment shown in defense was pathetic, when you see players jogging in the background after the Blues have cut the Lions’ defense open, it cuts me to the heart. There’s no effort in cover or scramble defense. And this is what disappoints me more than anything. The kick-chasing is absolutely pathetic. There is no intensity in this Lions side.
No review is needed. It was a shocking game. 17 handling errors by the Lions.
Can’t say anymore. We don’t deserve a SupeRugby berth. Give the Kings an opportunity, ‘because I’d rather have their supporters feel this shite week in and week out than us.
Final score: Blues 25 – 3 Lions.
For the Blues:
Tries: Hobbs, Mathewson, L Braid
Cons: Anscombe 2
