    What a good advert for Rugby.

    Two totally contrasting styles of play, both highly effective when executed well, and both attractive to most spectators.

    Poor Johnny Welthagen must be sick to the pit of hi stomach. It certainly looked that way immediately after the game.

    Armand vd Merwe had agreat game and for me was probably my MOTM. (Don’t know who actually got it.)

    The Lions need to grab both vd Merwe and Luther Obie post haste and get them involved at a higher level.

    Well done Ikey’s. A never say die attitude won the day, even though a brain implosion handed it to you guys.

    Having said the positives above, I thought that ONCE AGAIN, the officials were ABSOLUTELY CRAP beyond belief.

    Something has to be done about the total stuff up that is Rugby officiating in this country.

    Next we’ll have a player tripping over his boot laces and the nearest opposition player getting yellow card.

    TMO should stand for “Too Much Opium”, ’cause I’m sure that they’re all on something.

    Had house guests arrive during the rugby! What a blindside… Anyways popped on with 8 minutes remaining and saw my alma mater was down and out 31 – 15 or something like that. When they left and I decided to check the final score, I was stunned with what I saw. I will read the comments to see what I missed. WELL DONE IKEYS!!!!
