The Bulls make the short trip to Emirates Airline Park to face the Lions in a Super Rugby Unlocked fixture on Saturday. Both come off commanding victories but it is the Bulls who look the dominant side in this year’s competition. 

Lions Form

The Lions currently have one win from their opening four matches along with a draw. The draw came as a result of nine Lions players having COVID-19 and having to abandon the match against the Cheetahs in week three.

On the opening weekend the Lions lost 19-16 to the Sharks after leading 13-3. In their second match the Lions also lead but again lost out 23-17 to the Stormers at Newlands.

Last weekend saw the Lions smash Griquas 61-31 at Emirates Airline Park which they will hope will give them some momentum. The Lions outscored Griquas by nine tries to four but they’ll need to tighten up on defence this weekend.

Lions Team News

Last week the Lions had a few fitness concerns so we may see changes this week. Scrum-half Ross Cronje and centre, Burger Odendaal should be fit to start after coming off the bench against Griquas.

Bulls Form

The Bulls top the Super Rugby Unlocked table after four matches with three wins and a defeat. While they seemed to struggle in their opening two games, their last two have been very convincing.

The Bulls narrowly escaped defeat on the opening weekend as they defeated Griquas 30-23 at home. In week two the Bulls lost 19-17 in Bloemfontein against an in-form Cheetahs outfit.

It was in week three that it all started to click for the Bulls. The Sharks arrived at Loftus as favourites at left with a 41-14 hammering. The Stormers suffered a similar fate last week as the Bulls won 39-6 and the match was called off 20 minutes early due to lightning.

Bulls Team News

The Bulls are unlikely to make many changes from the side that destroyed the Stormers. We may see Sintu Manjezi getting his first start at lock I place of Ruan Nortje after impressing off the bench/
