The Lions Post Super 15?
May 29, 2012 in Uncategorized
Whilst everybody is going on about the Kings/Lions debacle and are also very much concentrating on the Incoming Tests as well as the last few games of Super Rugby, I am looking forward to what lies beyond all this.
I am particularly interested in the Lions Currie Cup campaign.
Having seen the Springbok Squad and yes I know it needs to be trimmed down still, you note that not many Lions players are included. The same could be said about the Cheetahs but I am concentrating on the Lions for now.
Are they favourites along with the Cheetahs and maybe Province (after the Vodacom Cup) to defend their title? I think they might!
Yes, the Bulls, Stormers and Sharks have almost all their players playing for the Boks and Yes one can argue that that is the reason the Lions won the Currie Cup last season, but, their name is on the Cup and in 10 years’ time nobody would ask how they won it.
I hope they win it again this year just to show SARU and their cronies what idiots they are and give them a BIG middle finger.
