if this was strength vs strength as in the Currie Cup and strictly log points no conferences with a promo/rele in place then the Bulls Waratahs Sunwolves and Rebels were gone and Chiefs Hurricanes would have had their deserved homegames

If the Lions can't win this gees, it's been handed on a silver platter.

But hey that's the card they've been dealt

Good luck

Glad it's finals time

Crusaders slipped the last hurdle
Lions and Crusaders were outstanding throughout
anything can happen from here
we beat them last year at Ellispark QF but they also beat us in the pool rounds
anyteam in the QF can still take it with Lions the advantage

If the Lions can't win it this year it must be one of the biggest chokes in rugby.

Gifted an entire SR campaign without playing an NZ team.

Never having to play an NZ team in NZ at all, even in the finals series.

The weakest conference in SR history.

It's all in their favour, surely they have to win it from here.

The Lions Crusaders Hurricanes and Chiefs should win. Knockout rugby from now on.
Shitty S18 though with really low quality teams. Sunwolves 48 Auckland Blues 21 said it all.

They as always want to stone me to death when I talk about the first S10 but do yourself a favour Vern and google S10 rugby final 1993. The top 2 Australian teams played (Reds Tahs). 4x nz and sa had only 3 top Currie Cup teans (Northern Transvaal later renamed Bulls, Transvaal renamed Lions and Sharks the Currie Cup champions) and this is what I liked the 2 top PI teams Samoa and Tonga!

Its commercialized but was back then also. They throwed the baby(quality) out with the bathwater(unfair treatnent on teams e.g Lions e.g Kings)

There's some revisionist history going on here. The Saffer teams have historically owned the bottom of the table.

You've only won it three times in 20 years, hell the shitty, shitty Blues have won it as much as all of your teams put together.

In a tournament running only 20 years you've had the last placed team 14 times. And many of those times you've had the bottom two teams.

Despite having 300% more adult male rugby players than Australia, they have won SR 33% more than you have. And people comment on the lack of quality players in Aus.

You only got 6 teams because you bring advertising revenue and TV subs. You don't have the depth of player talent to support it. Based on results you should have the same as or less than Australia. You get four teams because the rest of SANZAAR would get bored with your crying.

How about dealing in facts for a change? Your teams weren't hard done by - they just weren't good enough for SR.

We certainly do have the depth and player talent to play anyone even with the politics medling into our sport
I can see that hiding the Lions gave your Chiefs last year in Hamilton when the Lions played nz teams in the pool rounds is still in reminiscence ;)
