    any news on how long Kamana's return from injury will be ? Hollenbach is far better than Van Rensburg. Dont understand Mitchells obsession with Deon. I rather bring in Wandile Mjekevu on the wing.

      agree 100% , Deon has been pretty useless this super15, and he just doesn't offer anything...Mjekevu or Tonderai Chavanga? are both brilliant options, Toderai was poor at the Lions with the few chances he got , but while at the Stormers, he was extremely dangerous, also hope Mapoe rediscovers the form he displayed while at the Cheetahs. It'll be interesting to see Kamana in the CC, and also Taute when he recovers, he was devastating in the Super15.

      kamana broke his leg if i'm not mistaking so he will only be back next year.

    This team is going to give Griquas a hard time in Kimberly! Lets hope they find their rhythm faster than in their opener against the Pumas.

    While I rate Taute as a star for the future, Michael Killian made a big diff when he came on. Looking forward to seeing Waylon back in the mix. Griquas in Kimberly is gonna be tough. Go Lions!

    Team need Kamana on the wing

  • James B - 2011-07-20 15:42

    Rate Des Fountain.He is not a wing Thought. He is a 12. He played some exceptional games at the Stormers.I rate him highly as a 12 tho.Lional and kamana must be on the wing and Killian on fullback.
