4 LIONS LEAVE BULLS FEELING BLUE
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.
