JOHANNESBURG – Griquas may have lost last weekend by a point to the Lions, who they face at Ellis Park in the semi-final this Saturday, but they still have an excellent chance of winning and progressing to the final, according to former captain Jonathan Mokuena.
The Lions edged Griquas 27-26 in Kimberley last Saturday to book a home semi-final at Ellis Park and push Griquas down to third, meaning they have to travel this week.
But in spite of that, Mokuena believes Griquas will back themselves on the road.
“If you look at Griquas’ results this year I’d say they almost play better when away from home. They won’t worry about playing at Ellis Park, and I believe they certainly have a chance of winning through to the final.”
Mokuena would be right about Brent Janse van Rensburg’s team doing well on the road. They knocked over the Sharks 37-13 in Durban and the Bulls 37-15 in Pretoria earlier in the campaign.
