  • FULL TIME!  The Lions advance to the 2018 Super Rugby Semi Finals!  Holding a healthy lead at the half time break, the home side got an almighty scare when the Jaguares scored the opening two tries of the first half and drew within a converted try.  The Lions were able to weather the storm however and eased away to score a well-deserved 40-23 victory over the visitors.  The Lions now advance to a Semi Final showdown next week against the Waratahs at home.
