The Lions meet Griquas at Emirates Airline Park as both teams seek their first 2020 Super Rugby Unlocked victory on Friday. The hosts have been disrupted by COVID-19 infections which will give Griquas hope of causing an upset, but the Lions are welcoming back some top players.

Lions Form

The Lions lost their opening two matches of Super Rugby Unlocked while their last match was abandoned due to the COVID-19 infections within their squad.

On the opening weekend of Super Rugby Unlocked the Lions went down 19-16 at the Sharks before losing 23-17 to the Stormers. In both matches the Lions held a lead but fell away as the match progressed.

Last week the Lions had six players hit by COVID-19 and the game was called off at the last minute. 

Lions News

Captain and fly-half Elton Jantjies returns to the Lions team after recovering from injury as does full-back Gianni Lombard.

Griquas Form

Griquas, like the Lions, have lost their opening two matches. First they suffered a 30-23 loss to the Bulls and then fell 27-21 to the Pumas at home. 

The latter result will hurt the Griquas as their home form is normally very good. This is a must-win for Griquas if they hope of qualifying for the playoffs, and they may fancy their chances against an undercooked Lions outfit. 

Griquas News

Griquas had a bye last week which gave the players an opportunity to overcome some niggles. According to reports they have a fully fit squad from which to pick.

Lions vs Griquas Head to Head
