:lol: maybe because the scores are normally the other way round?

There may have been some match fixing by the TMO too as the video refuses to surface anywhere.

I kind of like Cell C Sharks as well.

Watching Ashwin Willemse try to get around saying that was about the only interesting thing he had to say when he was on the screen.

I remember one match where the commentator had to introduce things as "Welcome to Vodacom Park for this Vodacom Super Rugby match between the Vodacom Cheetahs and the Vodacom Lions" x(

Jesus that's bad. This whole "named sponsor" and "stadium sponsor" thing is a joke. Don't get me wrong, I get why it is being done, but it really is cringeworthy and I don't think the sponsors get as much value out of it as they think they do.

Just slap your logo on the replica jersey and let the fans be your billboards. That's probably the best you can hope for. Adding your name in front of the team doesn't strengthen your brand, it just cheapens the team's. It's only the SA sides that do this.

Indeed. And the ill-fitting cap on the captain at the end of the match is the cherry on top!

If only they could get more suitable sponsors. For instance instead of the Toyota Cheetahs rather the Tata Cheetahs.

We're cheapskates
When we move we move slowly
We break down a lot
You'll never feel like a winner driving a Tata or supporting the Cheetahs.
And you can say Tata to Super Rugby too.
