    I have to say im not too familiar with alot of the players, Naas Olivier has been playing really well for the Cheetahs at 10, Basson is a very good SA sevens player, Makoena likewise. Also former Springbok Egon Seconds, looks like it will be the customary big opening win for the Lions..

    Ja I agree, most of these players are Vodacom Cup level. The Lions will put a big score on them.

    BTW is Seconds really a capped Bok? News to me. I remember him being a good, but barely S14 level, winger for WP back in the day.
     
  4. Hmm, i think he might have only been in the training squad come to think of it. Still he was highly rated a few years back, but i fear they will be the equivelent of Manawatu of the last series.
