Lions go up a level to beat the Crusaders and reach a home semi final

first_imgMonday Jul 25, 2016 Lions go up a level to beat the Crusaders and reach a home semi final The Lions have proved to be the unlikely shining light for the South African Super Rugby teams as they defeated the Crusaders 42-25 in a highly entertaining game at Ellis Park. The Lions scored early and kept the momentum up throughout the match, while the Crusaders battled back as best they could, scoring a consolation try late in the game. The victorious Lions have turned their fortunes around with very few big name stars and after having actually been relegated as recently as 2012.But superb leadership, by both coach Johan Ackermann and captain Warren Whiteley, and a strong team work ethic has clearly brought the best out of them.Through their performances, the likes of Faf de Klerk, Lionel Mapoe and Ruan Combrinck are now Test players, not to mention Elton Jantjies and Whiteley himself, who returned on Saturday.They will host the Highlanders in the semi final in Johannesburg, in what will be their first time in the semi finals in 15 years. Getting there by beating seven-times champions Crusaders makes it all the sweeter.“Look, the Crusaders got the better of us in the last three years of Super Rugby so we knew tonight was going to be a battle,” said returning captain Whiteley. “[I am] So proud of the guys.”To reach the final they will need to lift their game yet again, as next week they face a hungry Highlanders team who will be determined to retain their Super Rugby title.credit: sanzaarrugbyADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Messi ends Chelsea drought to give Barcelona last-16 edge

first_imgLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Chelsea manager Antonio Conte rued one costly mistake as Lionel Messi gave Barcelona the upper hand from the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie by salvaging a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge.Messi struck for the first time in nine games against Chelsea 15 minutes from the end, as Andres Iniesta punished the English champions once more when he intercepted Andreas Christensen’s slack pass across his own box to tee up the five-time World Player of the Year.Willian’s fine strike just after the hour mark had put Chelsea in command after he had hit both posts in the first half. Chelsea must now score when they travel to the Camp Nou on March 14 to have any chance of making the last eight.“Against this opponent, this type of player like Messi, (Luis) Suarez, Iniesta, if you make a mistake you pay,” said Conte. “We failed to create clear-cut chances despite having domination of the game. In the end it came from an error from them and we took advantage,” said Barca coach Ernesto Valverde.“It is a good score given we were behind and clearly there is everything left to decide in the second leg.”Conte sprang a surprise before kick-off by leaving out both Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata with Eden Hazard instead operating in the middle of a front three.Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2center_img “There is a bit of disappointment. But at the same time this game must give us a lot of confidence to trust that in the second leg the qualification is open.”Nine years on from combining for a stoppage-time equaliser in a highly controversial semi-final at Stamford Bridge to send Barca to the final, Iniesta and Messi swapped roles as this time the Spaniard provided the pass and Messi the finish.last_img read more
