      Lions ja!!!!!!!!!!!

      David - 2012-01-24 13:52

      Why does News24/Sport24 carry so many stories about the Stormers, is it because Naspers which owns News24 is from Cape Town. Of the last few stories on the S15, 8 are for the Stomers 1 for the sharks, lions bulls and cheethas

      Craig - 2012-01-24 15:21

      @DaveB - So please inform us all what efforts the other teams are making. Cause so far all i see is the Stormers organising and getting things going.

      Bulldozer - 2012-01-24 16:11

      Craig, maybe if News24 did some reporting on the other teams, we would've known what plans they were making. Idiot.

      George - 2012-01-24 16:33

      @DaveB, because they are worth talking about, they are newsworthy

      George - 2012-01-24 16:35

      @Bulldozer, the other teams don't have a plan. Dork

      Bulldozer - 2012-01-24 18:04

      Yes, and the Stormers don't have a trophy for 11 years. Dork.

      keegan.adonis - 2012-01-24 20:44

      its funny u say havnt won in 11 years but wp has won the most cups in history..

  • Johan - 2012-01-24 13:07

    LIONS :D

  • Nico - 2012-01-24 13:12

    GO LIONS!!! They picked their E-side for us, so should be a good win :)

      Bulldozer - 2012-01-24 13:21

      The 'E' side is all they've got.

  • Paul - 2012-01-24 13:16

    Can we please get rid of Ha(sbeen)bana: Gerhard van den Heever is a far better wing - that is for sure - watch this space!

  • Stacey - 2012-01-24 13:35

    And suddenly there are Lion's supporters all around, where have you all been? GO STORMERS!

      Mike - 2012-01-24 13:49

      We have been here all along - 50 000 Lions supports at Ellis park to see the Home Team win the Currie Cup - Must admit it has been a tough past 12 years

      Lionel - 2012-01-24 13:58

      I agree Stacey,MTN must have sponsored them

      David - 2012-01-24 14:50

      They have been in morning for the last 50 years

      David - 2012-01-24 14:50

      Correction-they have been in mourning for the last 50 years.

  • Steenbra - 2012-01-24 13:39

    Would have like to see Carr ahead of Koster, lets hope he gets game time.

  • Johan - 2012-01-24 14:04

    Cape Towns’ Table Mountain has made it into the Seven Wonders of the World. The eighth wonder will be if they (WP) win the Curry Cup!!

      George - 2012-01-24 16:41

      Johan go do some homework and see how many times they have won the currie cup and how many times in a row so the lions still have a long way to go. Oh and it is not curry, you cant eat this

      Jislaaik Johan. Vir n ou toppie is jy darem dom.
