Roar­ing down the touch­line

Destiny Man - - SPORTS ROUND-UP -

Michael Tambwe tore up the El­lis Park turf and the form­book when he helped the Lions ham­mer the Storm­ers 52-31 in Jo­han­nes­burg.

The DRC-born left winger scored four tries, in­clud­ing a hat-trick in un­der 13 min­utes, one of the fastest in Su­per Rugby his­tory, to see the men in red and white ex­tend their un­beaten run against South African op­po­si­tion to 20 matches and put an end to an in­dif­fer­ent cou­ple of weeks.

The fleet-footed 22-year-old is one of the ex­cit­ing young tal­ents mak­ing waves in lo­cal rugby, along­side Bl­itzboks won­derkid Sel­wyn Davids and Univer­sity of the Western Cape full-back Tris­tan Lleyds, brother of Storm­ers star Dil­lyn.
