It's a highly controversial end to the game though. The Highlanders charged up too quickly which halted Jantjies before he was about to kick. The referee (Angus Gardner) could have given him the option to take the kick again, but decided not to and blew the final whistle. Heartbreaking for the Lions, who were the better side on the night!


FULL-TIME: Highlanders 23-22 Lions

The Lions go away with two bonus points - one for losing by less than seven, and one for scoring four tries. The hosts get four for the win.


80' - Jantjies hits the posts and it bounces back. Agony for the Lions!

The kick may have hit the posts but it also didn't have the "legs" to go all the way...


79' - Elton Jantjies has a kick from the corner to win the game for the Lions!


79' - TRY! After relentless pressure from the Lions, Courtnall Skosan scores in the corner for the Lions.


77' - TMO Vinny Munro says he cannot say for certain if a try was scored. It was in all likelihood a try, but you just couldn't say for sure. So perhaps the right call was made.


77' - The commentators think it's a try, but you can't say for sure...


77' - TMO CALL

The TMO is called into action with the Lions claiming to have scored a try at the base of the posts...

Warwick Tecklenburg is the man.


76' - The Lions are mere inches away. They win another penalty, with Cronjé taking a quick tap...


75' - Another attacking chance for the Lions. Lineout five metres out.

Elton Jantjies has now also replaced Boshoff at flyhalf.


75' - Ross Cronjé is on at scrumhalf for Faf de Klerk.


75' - TWEET

Lions have arguably 2 of the most exciting young hooking prospects in SA. Malcolm Marx and PUKKE's Armand Van Der Merwe ... - KZN Rugby News


73' - The Lions are back on the attack, another lineout drive brings them into the Highlanders 22m area. However, a knock-on five metres out brings relief for the hosts.


72' - Boshoff misses the conversion.

Highlanders 23-17 Lions


70' - TRY! Replacement hooker Armand van der Merwe scores in the corner!

Skipper Whiteley decided to break on the blindside after the Lions set up an attacking lineout drive, before passing to his hooker who barged over.

GAME ON!


69' - It's all Lions now! They again attack from their own 22, all the way to the other end of the park...

Replacement back JW Jonker has made a big impact off the bench!


67' - Boshoff misses the tough conversion.

Highlanders 23-12 Lions


66' - TRY! Lionel Mapoe scores in the corner for the Lions.

It was literally a move which started from their own line. The Highlanders were hot on attack when Parker attempted a cross-kick, which was beautifully taken by Courtnall Skosan, who launched a counter-attack, and after several moves, the Lions scored in the corner!


63' - 15 AGAINST 15

Chris King's time in the sin-bin is up, but he is replaced so it's an early night for him.


63' - Warwick Tecklenburg has replaced Derick Minnie at flank for the Lions.


61' - A Lions turnover sees them launch a counter-attack up-field...

Unfortunately Anthony Volmink can't hold on to a clever back-flip pass from Faf de Klerk and the move is halted...

Some great hands from the Lions backs before that though!


60' - Armand van der Merwe has replaced Schalk van der Merwe at prop for the Lions.


60' - The hosts win a penalty from the ensuing scrum and opt for an attacking lineout.


58' - Boshoff again kicks away possession. It rolls all the way to the dead-ball line and a clever Highlanders player uses his feet to make sure the rolling ball goes dead. It means a scrum on halfway to the hosts.

Boshoff has kicked away too much ball!


56' - The Lions AGAIN lose possession after attempting a driving maul from a lineout! They've been rather poor in that department today!


54' - Unfortunately for the Lions they can't convert on an attaching driving maul. The hosts win a turnover close to their own line...


54' - Luckily for the Lions their skipper is back up.


53' - YELLOW CARD

Highlanders prop Chris King is off for 10 minutes.

King looks bemused, but he's perhaps lucky not to have seen red there...


53' - Oh dear, Lions skipper Whiteley is down. Replays show he was taken out by Chris Kings off the ball. He hit Whiteley flush on the jaw with his elbow. Should be a card!


52' - Highlanders hooker Ged Robinson is replaced by Liam Coltman. The hosts are feeling the heat at scrum time!


51' - Ben Smith again proving a menace for the Lions when on the attack!

The hosts surge into the Lions 22m area, but the men from Joburg turn it over to bring relief...


47' - A promising move by the Lions inside Highlanders territory ends when Boshoff decides to kick an up-and-under. Richard Buckman takes the mark.

Silly from Boshoff there!


46' - The Lions win a scrum penalty on their own 22m line which gives Boshoff the chance to bring relief...


44' - Oh dear, Boshoff puts his team under pressure when he kicks it out on the full just outside his own 22m line...


43' - Boshoff CONVERTS.

Highlanders 23-7 Lions


42' - TRY! Faf de Klerk scores next to the uprights.

He took a quick tap after the Lions won another penalty. A strong run by Watermeyer put the Lions on the verge, before De Klerk pounced to score.


41' - A good start by the Lions, who move up to the Highlanders 22m area. They win a penalty and again opt for the lineout...

If they want any chance in this game, they must score right now!


40' - The Highlanders have made a front row replacement. Kane Hames on for Ma'afu Fia.


40'-  Welcome back for the second period. Boshoff kicks off for the Lions...

The Lions are gonners!


38' - Parker misses the conversion from the touchline.

Highlanders 18-0 Lions.


37' - TRY AWARDED to Buckman. The TMO correctly sees nothing wrong with that. Lionel Mapoe was the man out-sprinted there...


37' - No they can't. The Highlanders win it back and launch a counter attack. Wing Buckman again sprints down the touchline before kicking up-field, out-sprinting the Lions to dot down. The TMO must check though... 


36' - Another attacking chance for the Lions close to the Highlanders 22m area. Can they convert?


34' - TWEET

Lions inside centre having a nightmare.... as a coach you need to make that call, "he's having an off day - sub him"?? #changetheflow - Alan Zondagh


31' - The Highlanders pounce on a dropped Lions ball on halfway and launch a counter attack.

Wing Buckman chips over the top but luckily for the Lions, Boshoff comes to the rescue to dot it down dead...


31' - TWEET

Bok call-ups from this Lions squad? I can think of only Whiteley and perhaps Redelinghuys - JW Coetzee


30' - After half an hour's play, the Lions have had 56% possession...

Also 63% territory for the visitors.


30' - The Lions have plenty of possession but appear to be too lateral on attack. Some good defence by the 'Landers though...


27' - Faf de Klerk pounces on an overthrown Highlanders lineout ball. He chips over the defence to bring play into the Highlanders 22m area...


25' - DROP KICK!

Not from Boshoff, but Highlanders pivot Parker from just outside the Lions 22m area...

Highlanders 13-0 Lions


24' - From the ensuing kick-offCourtnall Skosan is penalised - and warned - for taking out a Highlanders players in the air.

Silly penalties creeping into the Lions game now...


23' - PENALTY converted by Hayden Parker from 48m out.

Highlanders 10-0 Lions.


22' - Scrum penalty to the Highlanders just inside the Lions half.


21' - Another Highlanders player off injured. John Hardie off, Gareth Evans on.

17' - TWEET
Since when do you stop a game for an injured ankle? - JW Coetzee


16' - Wheeler is back on his feet, but doesn't look like he'll play on.

He is helped off, with Tom Franklin coming on.


16' - Play is halted with Highlanders lock Joe Wheeler down. Looks like a serious leg injury. The Lions will feel aggrieved though, as they were launching a promising move inside the Highlanders half...


15' - At the ensuing scrum, the Lions are penalised for not pushing straight. The hosts can now get out of the danger zone...


13' - After a promising lineout maul from the Lions inside the Highlanders 22m area, the ball is turned over... change gone begging!


12' - Lions win a scrum penalty just inside the Highlanders half. They opt not to kick for posts. Maybe not a bad decision, but lets hope Boshoff doesn't try and drop it again!

Different view tonight - Lima Sopoaga


9' - A sniping break from All Black scrumhalf Aaron Smith puts the Highlanders inside the Lions 22m area, but he is then penalised for holding on too long on the ground...

His opposite number, Faf de Klerk, did well to catch him and win the penalty!


7' - Highlanders fullback Ben Smith looking dangerous early on here. Very promising player!


5' - Boshoff attempts a drop kick but it is away to the left. Wasted opportunity in my book there. Why try set up the attacking move and then just kick it away?


4' - Attacking lineout for the Lions on the Highlanders 22m area...


3' - Hayden Parker CONVERTS from the touchline.

Highlanders 7-0 Lions


3' - TRY AWARDED! Replays showed a good grounding and that the player's feet were not over the touchline. The try was preceded by some silky handling skills out wide by the hosts.


2' - TRY OR NO TRY? Highlanders right wing Richard Buckman scores in the corner. The referee wants to check with the TMO though...

Welcome to Sport24's LIVE scoring and interactive commentary on today's Super Rugby match between the Highlanders and Lions from Dunedin!


  • 80'

    Elton Jantjies steps up for the conversion under great pressure from close to the touchline. His effort is on target but falls just short! The Highlanders have won! It was nail-biting stuff towards the end but in the end the hosts have clung on! The Lions are desperately unlucky as they were on top for the entire second half. That's unfortunately how the cookie crumbles and what a game it's been.

  • 80'

    Highlanders 23 Lions 22

  • 79'

    TRY, LIONS, SKOSAN! 23-22. From the scrum, the Lions set up a couple of phases before taking it wide to their backs where Skosan dives in at the left-hand corner!

  • 78'

    The Lions are camped close to the Highlanders' try-line but the hosts are defending like Trojans! Several forwards make a dash for the line and eventually Rudi Mathee places the ball at the base of the post and after checking with his TMO referee Gardner awards a scrum to the visitors as it was inconclusive whether a try was scored.

  • 75'

    The Lions are on the attack inside the Highlanders' 22 and put pressure on the hosts at a scrum. The Highlanders do well to get the ball out to Ben Smith who puts the ball into touch on his 22-metre line.

  • 73'

    TRY, LIONS, A VAN DER MERWE! 23-17. The Lions go on the attack, from a line-out close to the Highlanders' line and Whiteley finds himself in space before passing to Armand van der Merwe who dots down in the right-hand corner!

  • 71'

    The Lions are right back in this game and doing most of the attacking at the moment! They are soon close to the hosts' 22 and Jonker stabs a grubber kick through which rolls into touch 10 metres from the Highlanders' try-line.

  • 68'

    TRY, LIONS, MAPOE! 23-12. Boshoff makes a break and offloads to Whiteley who gets the ball out to JW Jonker inside the Highlanders' 22. He draws in the final defender before offloading to Mapoe, who gets in for the visitors' second try.

  • 66'

    Parker launches a cross-field kick for Emery to chase but Skosan does brilliantly by gathering, close to his try-line. He sets off on a run and eventually offloads to Watermeyer on the edge of his 22.

  • 64'

    Courtnall Skosan is pinged for holding onto the ball on the ground. Parker puts the ball into touch on the visitors' 22-metre line.

  • 62'

    The Lions win a turnover at a ruck and attack with their backs! They are soon inside the Highlanders' 22 but Volmink knocks on a pass from De Klerk.

  • 60'

    Schal van der Merwe is penalised for not pushing straight in a scrum. Parker puts the resulting penalty out on the Lions' 22-metre line.

  • 57'

    Thr Lions pick-up-and-go with their forwards but Robbie Coetzee loses the ball in contact after a big hit from Dixon.

  • 55'

    YELLOW CARD, HIGHLANDERS, KING! Chris King will spend the next 10 minutes in the sin bin after he plays Warren Whiteley off the ball with an stiff arm to the Lions skipper's head.

  • 53'

    Emery attacks inside the Lions' 22 but can't get past Lionel Mapoe, who also holds him up in the tackle. The end result is possession to the Lions again when the maul becomes static.

  • 51'

    Nasi Manu takes the ball into contact after the Highlanders win a line-out on the Lions' 22. He gains some ground but is held up in the tackle by Jaco Kriel and Martin Muller. When the maul becomes statric, it's the Lions who have the put-in to the scrum.

  • 49'

    The Lions take the ball through several of phases with their forwards before Boshoff launches an up-and-under. Buckman gathers under great pressure, inside his 22, and calls a mark.

  • 47'

  • 43'

    TRY, LIONS, DE KLERK! 23-5. The Lions take a tap penalty, close to the Highlanders' try-line and Stefan Waternmeyer is stopped just short of the line. Faf de Klerk spots a gap, at the ensuing ruck and dives over next to the goal-posts!

The ball comes out to Emery, who throws a pass to Gavin Evans, who scores in the left-hand corner! Parker misses with the conversion from the touchline which is the final act of the half. It's been one-way traffic for the hosts and the Lions will have to show considerable improvement, after the break, if they want to be victorious.

    Highlanders 23 Lions 0

  • 37'

    TRY, HIGHLANDERS, BUCKMAN! 18-0. Phil Burleigh gathers a pass, from Aaron Smith, inside his half and kicks ahead. The Lions think they have it under control but Richard Buckman races past two defendrs before diving onto the ball behind the visitors' try-line!

  • 28'

  • 26'

    DROP GOAL, HIGHLANDERS, PARKER! 13-0. Parker has just handed the visitors some of their own medicine! The hosts can't breach their opponents' defence with their forwards and Parker catches everyone by surprise when he lands a snap-shot from about 25 metres out!

  • 23'

    PENALTY, HIGHLANDERS, PARKER! 10-0. Parker lands a three-pointer from 48 metres out after the Lions forwards are penalised for illegal play at a ruck.

    Elliott Dixon is pinged for entering a maul from the wrong side. Boshoff puts the ball out five metres from the halfway line.

  • 6'

    The Lions take the ball through the phases with their forwards and are soon just outside the Highlanders' 22. Boshoff drops into the pocket and tries a drop goal attempt but it's just wide of the mark!

  • 4'

  • 3'

    TRY, HIGHLANDERS, BUCKMAN! 5-0. Richard Buckman sets off on a mazy run down the right-hand touchline! He beats four defenders before crashing over in the corner!
