The Lions will win this easily.

The Reds will stay in the game until the 55 minute mark. There'll be two quick tries and possibly a biting incident and that will be the end of the game. :(

Reds to come on field with shined up knuckle dusters, sharpened gum shield and newly shod togs (sharpened studs, of course) And a mantra from Roberto Duran ("Fists of Stone") muddling through their brains...

Lions will guard themselves with extra thick gum shields, and lightweight togs to run away more easily ..

Does the biting incident stop the game early?

"We have a rotation policy but because we won‚ we will have to keep continuity‚" he said about last Saturday’s impressive 29-0 victory over the Waratahs.

"If there are no injuries‚ and it doesn’t look like we have any‚ there is no need to tinker with the team‚" he said before suggesting there might be some changes on the bench.

De Bruin may‚ however‚ be forced into a change in midfield where Lionel Mapoe is struggling with a sore groin.

"We’ll look at that tomorrow and make a final call‚" he said. "We won’t change much."

Should Mapoe be ruled out Rohan Janse van Rensburg’s burly presence may just be the antidote in what is likely to be a busy inside channel with Reds centre Samu Kerevi barrelling down at Elton Jantjies.

Apart from Mapoe‚ there are no other injury concerns.

"The knock Kwagga Smith took on his shoulder isn’t serious‚" he said. "He got a bit of a stinger in a tackle‚ that’s all."

Coach Swys de Bruin, though, knows that the Reds have a massive weapon in the form of Wallaby Samu Kerevi.

The 24-year-old No 12 was the shining light for the Reds this past weekend as they fell to a 36-12 loss to the Chiefs, and De Bruin is expecting him to provide the biggest threat to the Lions.

"Their No 12 is their best player and a very direct runner," De Bruin said.

The coach is expecting Kerevi to run at Lions flyhalf Elton Jantjies, but he has faith that his playmaker is solid enough on defence to deal with that.

"He (Kerevi) will make cut-backs on Elton, but the way Elton stopped that big monster of an 11 from the Waratahs ... he's a very gutsy player and he defends well,” said De Bruin.

"Whoever runs at him in his channel, he will be ready, I'm sure of that."

De Bruin was referring to Waratahs left wing Taqele Naiyaravoro, who Jantjies and the Lions stopped in Sydney.

Good to see Stewert finally get a start; Lance has been crap apart from defence. Surprised Perese dropped. Petaia has barely grown his first pube, so this'll be quite a test.

Reds by 1.

Methinks the Lions will be prepared for Brad Thone's lads' bully boy tactics - and more than capable of dealing with it !

Advice from another site :)

1) Go to your local bottle store
2) Buy your preferred tipple.
3) Line them up on your coffee table
4) Switch on the game
5) Every time the ref makes a wrong call. Down a frustration doppie.
6) Every time your team turns over the ball. Down a anger doppie.
7) Every time their team turns over the ball. Down a Yay! doppie.
8 ) Every time your team scores. Down a celebratory doppie.
9) Every time their team scores. Down a depression doppie.
10) Every time the commentator speaks nonsense. Down a nonsense doppie.
11) Every time the camera shows a pretty girl in the crowd. Down a lekker doppie!
12) Every time the camera shows anyone in the crowd. Down a This One's For You doppie!
12) Every time the crowd cheers. Down a cheerful doppie.

At the end of the game, the amount of alcohol in your blood is guaranteed to make the amount of rugby in your blood insignificant.

Best midfield options imo. :thumbup:

Then hopefully when Dyanti (sp?) returns, Combrink can move to 15 in place of Coetzee :)

o The Lions have won their last six games on the bounce in Australia, winning by an average margin of 15 points per game in that time.

o The Lions boast a lineout success rate of 91% this season, the best of any team.

o James Tuttle has a goal-kicking success rate of 88% this campaign, the best of any player to have made at least five attempts at the uprights. Not sure why his stats are in here as he's not playing

As it's the Reds solitary afternoon home game of the year, I'll be dragging our 3 urchins along. Hopefully they allow the fans onto the field after the match, as this will probably be the highlight of the afternoon for the Reds supporters. If we somehow manage to jag a win I'll be shocked, happy, and probably drunk within an hour.

So when can we expect Whitely back? And Dyantyi? Also does Tuttle do all the place kicking for the Reds?

Whiteley, not sure but Dyantyi is playing in the SS Rugby Challenge this weekend, his first game back
