The Lions flew out of the gate at Johannesburg and were never headed, even if it took a while to get clear of a tenacious Crusaders side that was chasing the game for almost all the 80 minutes.

The Lions looked good, they applied a ton of pressure across the ground all day and the Crusaders spent long periods of the match trying to find ways to get either position or possession, while pairing the two up was difficult to the point of near-impossibility.

I think we got one answer on the Buenos Aires decision – it didn’t do Johan Ackerman’s regulars any harm at all to stay home – and it will be a couple of weeks before we know whether they can handle whatever is left for them.
