***MAN-OF-THE-MATCH***

Demetri Catrakilis is the man-of-the-match.

25 Oct 18:45

***WHAT A GAME***

That was an intense last 40 minutes of Currie Cup rugby.  WP were in trouble in the scrums as expected.  It might come down to the fact that Demetri Catrakilis had his kicking boots on today but poor Marnitz Boshoff did not.

The Lions ended up missing five kicks at goal.
