Lions want to make it count
LIONS hooker Malcolm Marx has called on his teammates to make the most of the second chance they have been afforded after they were beaten in last year’s Super Rugby final.
The Lions did everything asked of them in 2016 to have a full go at winning the title, except finish top of the log, and had to travel to Wellington to face the Hurricanes in the final. They lost 20-3, having also lost to the same team in the regular season, 50-17 at Ellis Park. LOOKING AHEAD: Willard Katsande of Kaizer Chiefs can’t wait for the new season. for a potential Bok-All Black match-up later this year. “He’s a brilliant player, like many of the Hurricanes players, but we’re definitely not focusing on any individuals,” said Marx. Both the Lions and Hurricanes will have off-days today before wrapping up their training and announcing their team line-ups tomorrow.
