What will be the outcome of the three test series with the Springboks?
- South Africa 4 - 0 B&I Lions
- South Africa 3 - 1 B&I Lions
- South Africa 2 - 2 B&I Lions
- South Africa 1 - 3 B&I Lions
- South Africa 0 - 4 B&I Lions
So, what are your thoughts? The B&I Lions nearly came unstuck against a very mediocre (and it’s being extremely charitable to even classify them as mediocre!) Royal XV side comprised of Vodacom Cup players. The Vodacom Cup being like the fourth division of SA domestic rugby after the Super 14, Currie Cup Premier Division and Currie Cup First Division.
In fact, they were outclassed for about 70 minutes and only pulled it through because of experience and, one would think, conditioning…
If they play like that against the Lions, Cheetahs, Sharks or Stormers they’re in for a big hiding, let alone what the Boks would make of them.
PS - I’ve made it four games in the poll. Three tests against the Springboks and one international against the Emerging Springboks.
