With all the injuries around are the Lions now favorites for Sa afternoons clash?
I BELIEVE SO!!
Now hear me out. – The Stormers has been hit with a cascade of injuries = Jean de Villiers, Reinard Elstadt, Peter Grant, Bryan Habana, Liebenberg(all season) and Broks been rested The big problem for the Men from the Cape is Peter and Jean the goal kicker and play maker booth out. This will dramatically lower their chances of winning.
Now I know you will be saying that the Lions have even more injuries which will be true. BUT the Lions at this moment does not have any world class players in their line-up and the first choice player is only marginally better than the second choice player, if that. Not even John Mitchell knows who his best player are and maybe all this injuries may work in their favour cause the players comming in might be better and deff can’t be worse. Cupple all this with home field advatage the Lions must be favourites to win for the first time in 2 years of super rugby!
Now what should have been a easy 5 points for the Stormers to forget about last weeks poor game (like the Sharks had last week) now becomes a real tussel for points.
Now I can’t wait for Sa game even if the Stormers will prob lose. Because it atleast now will be a tight game instead of a borring try fest that nobody cares about.
