Lions 6 (0) vs WP 14 (6)

Lions deny mountain goats again!

WP fail to score needed four tries against Lions 

The match was no spectacle, except perhaps for the Lions and WP supporters, and WP lead 7-0 at the break after Luke Watson scored after the hooter when we were a man down after Doppies la Grange got a yellow for hands in a ruck. Rose then slotted a penalty to make it 7-3, and then, with the Lions on the attack, Jean de Villiers intercepted a pass from Louis Strydom to Jaque Fourie and ran the length of the field to score and make it 14-3. About 6 minutes from full time Rose kicked another penalty to make the final score 14-6.
