  • FULL TIME - A thrilling contest, that had absolutely everything, comes to an end at Newlands!  The Lions faced a 10 point deficit at half time but ground their way back into the match and secured victory at the death with a 76th minute try to Madosh Tambwe.  The Stormers, on the other hand, will rue some poor discipline that resulted in a red card and two yellows leaving them with just 13 men on the field at one point.  After 80 gruelling minutes, the Lions have registered a crucial 26-23 victory over the Stormers to consolidate their top spot in the South African conference.
