JOHANNESBURG – The Lions are now just two wins away from turning an average year into something to remember, according to prop Dylan Smith.
After playing in the final of the Super Rugby competition between 2016 and 2018 the Lions missed out on the play-offs this season and also only snuck into the Currie Cup semi-finals.
But they managed to end second on the log and will host a semi-final at Ellis Park this weekend - against Griquas.
Win that game and they’ll be one step away from doing what they did in 2015 - winning the Currie Cup.
“It would be the cherry on top,” said Smith in the build-up to this Saturday’s showdown with Griquas, who the Lions beat in Kimberley last weekend to secure second place on the points table. “We’re looking at things as if there are two games to go, so it’s exciting (after the year we’ve had).”
