Lions vs Stormers Live Stream, TV Channel, Tickets & Preview Super Rugby 2018 Full HD
The Lions and Stormers face off at Ellis Park on Saturday in what will be a keenly contested South African Super Rugby derby clash.
The Stormers have an opportunity to cut the Lions’ lead at the top of the South African conference to three with a victory or even better two points with a bonus-point win in Johannesburg.
After a rip-roaring start to the season for the Lions, the season has slowed somewhat to a whimper with three losses in the last four games.
In fact, the Lions haven’t lost back-to-back matches since February 2015 when they fell to three in a row. A tally of four wins from seven games with a 57 win percentage in 2018 is simply not good enough for the 2016 and 2017 finalists.
However, the Lions have won their last 17 South African derbies and have not lost such a match on home turf since the Stormers turned them over in February 2015.
Plus, they have averaged five tries per match this season, the best rate of any side in the competition. The return of Ruan Combrinck on the wing will bolster their attacking options even further.
