  1. letts hope the Lions can make return this year to S15, Goodluck Lions, from a Bull

  2. Very young team. Ave age 23,22 with the only 4 players over 25 and the oldest, Bondesio, 27.

    With the young squad the Lions cannot afford too many injuries during the season otherwise they will play the Wooden Spoon Knockouts with a combo u/19-Craven Week side

  3. just beat the kings in the play-off for superrugby next season….revenge is sweet.

  4. Not sure about Lionel Cronje at 10 but Lions by 20+ points

  5. Lionel at flyhalf?

    Lets hope he kicks his first kick. He’s head sometimes leaves him when it comes to kicking. I’m calling Lions by 50.
