Lions vs Stormers - Relegation Match?

15 April 2013, 13:00
Based on current form and where things are heading, I predict a Lions vs Stormers relegation match. Don't shoot the messenger, just look at the facts as they present themselves.

Kings are riding high, having had, dare I say, the 'lions' share of the spoils from their Australasian trip.  I reckon the Super Kings are well on track to finish top 4 in the SA conference.

Of course, this does mean that I am suggesting that the Stormers season is pretty much over.  One lucky win over the Sharks does not a relegation miss.

The Super Kings should win a few of their home games to close the season off on a high and show everyone why they, on merit, deserve their place in Super Rugby.

So who will win the much-dreaded relegation match between the Lions and the Stormers?

I think the Lions might just be hungry enough to get back into Super Rugby.  But could the rugby bosses in South Africa bare the thought of Super Rugby without the Western Province inclusion? 

Only time will tell, but when the relegation match between the Lions and the Stormers happens, don't bet against an utterly desperate Lions pack taking on the past-their-sell-by-date Stormers.

Long live the Super Kings and their inclusion in Super Rugby!

Why I love Cambodia’s capital

There are so many reasons to hate Cambodia’s bite sized capital of Phnom Penh. Open sewers, naked children, piles of burning garbage on every street. Its a dirty, smelly, noisy amalgam. But Phnom Penh grows on you and by the time you leave it will occupy a special place in your heart. Read more...
