Western Province got the tag through the media this week as the outright favourites to win this week and defend their Currie Cup they won last year as well. This is a dangerous way of going into any play-off game.

The Lions is a quality side that can rip through any side and will have a great change to take the game at Newlands today. Two years back the Lions just did that when they beat full strength Western province and Bulls teams to claim the Currie Cup and they certainly can do the same today.

This should  be a cracker :support:

    Halftime score: WP 18, Lions 9

    WP looks like a team that can score from anywhere today. Lions just making some unforced errors on attack. If they can hold on to the ball longer they can score more points.
