I will bet once again against the Lions even if it was a bad choice last week.
They put a lot of intensity when they play and they have a fantastic kickscorer with Boschoff but when they don't have the ball and then have to defend, this is very/too complicated for this team which is the most penalized in Super Rugby.
Last week for their match against the Blues, I will say that the Blues gave them the win, they totally disrespected the Lions by playing without intensity during the first half, like if it was a friendly match... Of course, they had a huge lateness at the half time, but they woke up during the second half, simply handled the ball and forced the Lions to defend during almost all the second half, then it was very complicated for the Lions and the Blues accumulated tries and were closed to win despite this huge lateness at the half time and knowing that one try of the Lions shouldn't be validated.
So, I will say that the Blues could win that match if they played seriously since kick-off.
Tomorrow, I don't think that the Reds will do the same mistake. This isn't kind of team who over-estimate itself. Also, this match is targetted by the staff, last match against the Sharks was kind of training for this important match against the Lions where they know that they must win in order to stay close from play-offs spots.
The Reds are a team known to handle the ball very well and attack a lot thanks to talented aussies Genia or Cooper, so I think that they will succeed to force the Lions to defend during most of the time.
Moreover, there are no changes in the starting team of the Lions, I think that it could be a mistake from the staff because I found many Lions exhausted during the second half of their last match.
So, I think that the Reds will win this match, and I will try their win with this small handicap.
