    Lions to win by nearly as much as Kevin Pietersen’s batting average – 50.

    Cheers all.

    I’m heading off into the setting sun whilst it is still setting.

    The Lions were dealt another injury blow ahead of Saturday’s Absa Currie Cup clash against the Leopards when wing Lionel Mapoe picked up a knee injury during Wednesday morning’s training session at Jeppe Boys High.

    “Lionel incurred an injury in training on Wednesday and Dylon (des Fountain) will come into his position,” Lions coach John Mitchell confirmed when naming his side.

    Team not really weakened by the late change. If the Lions play like they did against Griqua’s, and Burton gets his kicks over, Lions will put 50+ on the board, and the scoreline will also be close to that 50 mark
