Nick Evans try vs the toothless Lions

Nick Evans try vs the toothless Lions

Aucklands Super 14 team the Blues punished the Lions by 55 points to 10 on Saturday night at Ellis Park in Johannesburg.

Last years semi finalists winning wasn't a surprise, but the emphatic victory and the manner in which the Blues brushed aside the young Lions was impressive to say the least.

Training ground moves were executed to perfection as the Lions defence fell to pieces and at one stage the Blues were scoring at a point a minute.

This Nick Evans try was an example of the quality of the Blues handling, but also the disorganisation of the Lions' defensive patterns.

It's going to be a long season ahead for the Lions if they continue to perform like that. As for the Blues, I think it's a safe bet that they'll be there in the top 4 when the Super 14 Semis come around.
