The Lions managed to secure a home Super Rugby semi-final for the third successive year after defeating the Jaguares 40-23 in Johannesburg last Saturday. This time the Lions will take on the Waratahs in this weekend’s semi-final showdown.

LIONS vs WARATAHS, Johannesburg, Saturday 3:05pm

Can the Hurricanes do the Lions a big favour on Saturday? A win for the Hurricanes in the semi-final in Christchurch will ensure that the 2018 Super Rugby final is staged outside of New Zealand. In a South African context, it will improve the chances of another decider taking place at Ellis Park.

Perhaps the Lions should put such scenarios out of their minds. What they know for certain at this stage is that they have one more hurdle to clear before playing in their third consecutive final.

 

The Waratahs advanced to the final four after turning a 17-point deficit at halftime into a seven-point victory against the Highlanders last week.

Waratahs player, Sekope Kepu told the Sydney Morning Herald that the Waratahs forwards were frothing with excitement about the challenge of the Lions’ proud, heavyweight pack:

“The biggest thing for me is going out with an attacking mentality,” said Kepu. “You’ve got to go out there and hope and hold the scrum because they’re a heavy pack. The challenge is to go out there and be an attacking scrum as much as we can be.”

According to the Waratahs’ website, the selection of hooker Tolu Latu is the only change to the starting line-up for Saturday night’s match.

The Lions are starting to hit their stride, though. They emerged convincing winners in the quarter-final against the Jaguares, and it’s clear that the respective returns of Malcolm Marx and Warren Whiteley have made a world of difference to their forward play.
