(Golden) Lions annihilate Samoa (74 – 14)

An almost full-strength Samoan side were humiliated by the Gauteng-based Vodacom Cup side, the Lions, on Saturday. With big names like Alesana Tuilagi and 7s star, Ofisa Treviranus, the Pacific Islanders were expected to beat their provincial opponents, but instead were rocked by 10 tries – many of which were long-range efforts.Results

Samoa will need to work on their set-piece and ball retention if they are to have any chance in their upcoming quadrangular with South Africa, Italy and Scotland.


Golden Lions 74 (27): Tries: Derick Minnie (3), Anthony Volmink, Chrysander Botha, Lionel Cronje, Stokkies Hanekom (2), Ross Cronje, Deon van Rensburg. Conversions: Marnitz Boshoff (3), Lionel Cronje (6). Penalties: Boshoff (2)

Samoa 14 (14): Tries: Alesana Tuilagi, Ofisa Treviranus. Conversions: Ki Anufe (2)
