THE LIONS CEL­E­BRATED their 125th year an­niver­sary with a very con­vinc­ing 41-13 win over the Blue Bulls in their open­ing Cur­rie Cup game of the sea­son. But the win came at a heavy price for the Lions.

Lions fly half Mar­nitz Boshoff is out for 12 weeks af­ter break­ing his right arm. Other rugby scores: EP 16-35 WP, Gri­quas 24-31 Sharks, Pu­mas 28-21 Chee­tahs.

Mean­while, there’s grow­ing con­cern over the fu­ture of Border rugby. Mil­lions in Lotto funds have gone into a Border academy and the in­sti­tu­tion has lit­tle to show for it.

U-21 games so far this sea­son: Border 0-90 WP. Border 6-82 Lions. Free State 118-6 Border. Blue Bulls 143-0 Border.
