RECAP: Stormers v Lions
READERS’ FORUM: Welcome to our live coverage of the South African Preparation match between the Stormers and the Lions in Cape Town.
The Stormers and Lions will continue with some ‘fine-tuning’.
Lions coach Ivan van Zyl said you can always expect a good set-piece game from the Stormers.
“However, they have shown more enterprise on attack in the last three games.
“They showed a willingness to throw the ball around, which makes them even more dangerous.”
