Late Bulls flurry floors Lions

The Bulls have beaten the Lions 38-32 to claim early Gauteng bragging rights.

The Bulls led 19-3 but the Lions showed character to reduce the lead with a two try burst and on the hour led 27-25.

But the final quarter belonged to the visitors who edged ahead with penalty kicks before making certain of the win with a try three minutes from the end.

The Lions, young and adventurous, still wouldn’t say no to the defeat and had the satisfaction of scoring the final try of the match.
