CAPE TOWN – Following Western Province’s narrow defeat to the Golden Lions on Saturday, coach John Dobson admitted that he made a mistake in going for the scrum instead of posts when they were 28-20 up.
Province dominated the opening half and looked well on their way to claiming a comfortable win at home, leading 21-7 at one stage.
But in the second half, the Lions came back and snatched what would have been a second Currie Cup win for Dobson’s side.
Province lost their away game against the Sharks last weekend and needed a win against the Lions to keep their hopes of hosting a semi-final alive.
They will need to win all three their remaining games to stay in the running for a play-off spot.
