The Steval Pumas lost their match against the Xerox Golden Lions at Emirates Airline Park on Friday, June 2. The fnal score was, 35-25 in favour of the Xerox Golden Lions.

“Our error rate was way too high and we lacked consistency. At times, we did things really well and at other times we did the very same thing poorly,” said Brent Janse van Rensburg, Coach, Steval Pumas. “We missed basic tackles when we were in control on defence and lost ball again at our attacking breakdown when we were on the front foot. This resulted in us conceding two tries. We need to lower our turnovers of concern, get the basics right and be consistent for 80 minutes.”
