Default Re: Official Rugby World CUp (and the lead up tests) Thread

Damn, my team (Lions) fell just short in the Currie Cup final.

We were leading 18-6 with just over 20 minutes to go, and then we conceded a converted try. 18-13 and we were in for a very tense final quarter. In the second-last minute, the Cheetahs' replacement fullback manages to dot the ball down milliseconds before being bundled into touch - it took loads ot TMO replays to determine. So their flyhalf steps up to convert from the left touchline. And it looks for all the money to be heading wide. But it bends in just enough to bounce in off the left upright. 20-18. Broke my heart.

There's always next year. Watch the Lions in the Super14.
