In what will be last weekend’s repeat clash, the Lions will be looking to make it two in a row following their nail-biting 27-26 victory over the Griquas in Kimberly.
Lions coach Ivan van Rooyan believes that continuity is key at this stage of the competition.
With the Griquas having recently announced that they will be parting ways with coach Brent Janse van Rensburg at the end of this season, Van Rooyan, who has worked with Van Rensburg before, says they are not expecting anything to change with the way they play.
The Lions are effectively two victories away from hypothetically lifting the elusive Currie Cup Title they last won in 2014.
Van Rooyan admitted that the thoughts are there but they need to topple the reigning Supersport Rugby Challenge champions (Griquas) first. – Report by Thando Gqamane
