The Steval Pumas are determined to defend their position at the top of the North Conference log, when they face the Xerox Golden Lions at Emirates Airline Park in Johannesburg on Friday, June 2.
Over the weekend, the Steval Pumas beat the Vodacom Blue Bulls 35-29 at Mbombela Stadium, Nelspruit, catapulting them into top spot with three wins and a draw from five matches.
“As always, we expect a high tempo from the Lions so we’ve made the changes to match that style of play. Right from the kick-off, we need to be prepared for them to try and play us off our feet,” said Brent Janse van Rensburg, Coach, Steval Pumas. “We need to come out of the blocks quickly and ensure that we bring the required intensity and work rate to this match.”
The match against the Xerox Golden kicks off at 14:00.
