Bulls v Lions RECAP | URC

READERS’ FORUM: Welcome to our live coverage of the United Rugby Championship Round 15 match between the Bulls and Lions at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria.

The Bulls and Lions will enter the Jukskei Derby under similar pressure at Loftus Versfeld, as the hosts – currently in sixth position on the log – lead the Sharks by only one point, and they know that a defeat could see them potentially fighting for a play-off spot.

The Lions, meanwhile, have everything to play for with the team currently in 12th position and trailing the eighth-placed Connacht by a mere six points. They also come off a morale-boosting win against the fourth-ranked Glasgow Warriors last weekend, which will give them confidence going into the clash.

The men from Johannesburg will also be keen to break a long losing streak on the road – they have not won away from home in the URC since they beat Edinburgh in Scotland on October 7. Furthermore, the Lions have not beaten a South African opponent since their 37-19 victory over the Stormers in Cape Town in December 2021.
