Reds no match for Lions


Skosan made it four tries for the Lions as they beat the Reds on Saturday with 44-14 to keep their winnings ways at home.

The Reds started well moving into the lions twenty-two early on but Lions defense hold them out and gave them a change to attack themselves.

The Lions had to defend for the better part of the first ten minutes.

The Lions started to control the ball more and played in the right side of the field and with a great break from Rohan he sends Skosan over for their first try.

Although the score did not change much the Lions dominated in most of the aspects. Jantjies did slotted over a penalty to take their lead to 10-0 after 31 min

The Lions kept the pressure on the Reds and with an attacking lineout, Jaco Kriel was at the end of a perfect drive to score the Lions second try of the match.

The teams went into the break with the Lions leading 15-0.

Everything went south for the Reds after halftime with the Lions dominating play.

First, they got a yellow card for deliberate offence near the try line and then Cooper was send off with a red card for a high shot at Rohan while scoring his try.

The Lions got their lead to 20-0 by that time and were lucky not to lose another player for a tip tackle on Jantjies.

It took not long to use the extra men they had as the Lions scored another try quickly after and took the scoreboard to 25-0 after 50 min.

The rest of the half was dominated by the Lions and they were able to score some great tries with the Reds able to get two tries on the board.

At the end the Lions was just too good for a Reds side who was not good enough.


Lions – Tries: Courtnall Skosan (4), Jaco Kriel, Rohan Janse van Rensburg, Malcolm Marx. Conversions: Elton Jantjies (2), Andries Coetzee. Penalty: Jantjies.
Reds – Try: Izaia Perese, Taniela Tupou. Conversion: Jake McIntyre (2).

    It will be a scandal if both seats of Lions front-rows do not make the Bok squad and more so if someone like Trevor remains above them. Dreyer and co were awesome against a very good Reds pack…
