Lions 14 (7) vs Force 55 (29)

Lions continue poor form

Force record biggest victory in Super 14

The Lions suffered another humiliating loss, this time at the hands of the Force, going down 55-14 in Perth on Friday.

Once it again it was their defense that lead them down, as they let in eight tries to two. Two of the Force tries were penalty tries, also leaving a question mark about the Lions discipline.
