JOHANNESBURG – They’re halfway through their league campaign and the Lions are sitting pretty in second spot on the log as the only unbeaten team in this year’s Currie Cup competition.
Ivan van Rooyen’s men have won three out of three, with three to play, in the round-robin stage.
They have 13 log points, two less than Griquas, who lead the way, but have played four games. In third place are Free State, with 11 points from three games, and fourth are Western Province, with seven points from three.
Van Rooyen and Co though will be somewhat concerned the Lions have had to pull off three quite astonishing second half comebacks for their three wins; the latest being last Friday’s 24-22 win against Free State in Bloemfontein.
