    I'm a Stormer and feel really sad for the Lions. Hope they get back before next seasons Super Series play-offs.

      Ask yourself tommy.jones . . . why did my franchise vote to kill off the lions ? And why are half of my fellow wp supporters turncoats when it comes to the national team And why do my fellow supporter mostly got the good calls made by HM wrong . . . And also - - why no cups for 11 years

      Spies , in your dream world yes...... The Bull's don't have the talent to beat any second string team. Bull's WILL lose against the LIONS they will LOSE in the relegation battle and we will free of all the inbred Pretoria's.

  • margo.george.18 - 2012-10-11 17:44

    Die bulls koop klomp spelers net om op die bank te sit en die ander moet seker vodacom en clubrugby speel.Die WP se President se hulle verkoop spelers wat 3de en 4de beste in hulle posisie is so waarom het mense 'n probleem?

      deon.fouche.3 - 2012-10-11 17:59

      Die WP verkoop spelers wat moeg is van choke

      Blou-Daan - 2012-10-11 18:35

      @margo.george.18 Gaan lees nou weer mooi stadig...... Niemand het gekoop nie, dis n tydelikke ooreenkoms, en die tipe van ding is gewoonlik die speler self wat by die ander unie gaan aansoek doen om vir n tyd land "gebruik" te word.

  • Michael Kleber - 2012-10-11 19:59

    Any team except the puKings , with lions players spread around can support all those teams except the puKings

  • Michael Kleber - 2012-10-11 20:03

  • blou.johnny - 2012-10-12 01:54
