Almost, but not to be
20 October 2018
The Xerox Golden Lions, with a young and talented team, gave it their all in Saturday's Currie Cup semi-final in Durban against the Cell C Sharks.
The clash was gripping, as the Lions fought their way back from 18-3 down at half-time to work their way to within two points of the hosts on the scoreboard with 11 minutes to play, before Dan du Preez barged over for his second try, to dash the Gautengers’ hopes of a victory.
Three braces were scored in the match, and all by Springboks, with Du Preez and Sbu Nkosi accounting for the Cell C Sharks four tries, while Courtnall Skosan scored two of the Xerox Golden Lions three tries.
The Cell C Sharks took a cautious approach in the first half by taking the points on offer at crucial times, which saw Robert du Preez kick two penalty goals, to add to tries by his younger brother and Nkosi, while they starved the visitors of possession, which limited them to a penalty goal for their efforts.
Nkosi crashed over for the second time from the restart, but three back-to-back tries by the Xerox Golden Lions skipper, Nic Groom, and two by Skosan got them back into the match. The hosts, however, remained calm and touched down for their fourth try with five minutes left on the clock, to book their place in the final.
