Lions

Johannesburg LionsFounded in 1996, the Lions have made the Super Rugby finals just twice in their history, in the 2000 and 2001 seasons. The Lions have often been clouded by an uncertain future due to their lowly finishes, and were relegated from the Super Rugby competition for the 2013 season after finishing last in 2012. After defeating the Southern Kings (who replaced them for the 2013 season) in a two-legged playoff, the Lions confirmed their return to Super Rugby in 2014. The Lions play out of the iconic Ellis Park, in Johannesburg.

Good wins have been punctuated by a lack of consistency that comes with a team that undergoes major changes while searching for self belief. The Waratahs have no need to continue to search after their […]

Lions loss in Dunedin yet another lesson in match awareness

by , 13 May 2014

In today’s professional, video-heavy environment, it’s fair to assume the Lions coaching staff and players would have seen plenty of the Highlanders leading into Saturday’s Round 13 Super Rugby clash. If so, they would have seen how the Highlanders butchered the end-game against the Force earlier in the season. They would surely have made a […]
