Post The Super rugby final result that got wiped from the record
The first Superrugby S10 final in 1993 after each team played every other team had Auckland (blues) and Transvaal (Lions) in the final at Ellispark.
Lions captained by Francois Pienaar won 20 - 17 and lifted the cup.
Still remember Kobus Wiese and Hannes Strydom were the Lions locks but Hannes Strydom got injured before the game and our buddy Lappies from the club for which I was playing with Kitch Christie the coach had to play against Ian Jones and Lappies took each and every ball on his own throw with his huge pair of hands.
It was the first shot in International rugby for sa players and e.g. Lappies first game against ABs. He never played them again as Kitch picked Kobus Wiese Hannes Strydom Mark Andrews for the WC.

Unfortunately this record was conveniently wiped from the record books when Lions were banned from international competition politically

Therefore you only read Bulls won it three times

I heard the tears of a thousand virgins landing on pure snow when I read that.
