Race for Currie Cup semifinal berths intensifies

Golden Lions captain Nic Groom believes his team will have to win the physical battle and have a feeling of desperation in their Currie Cup encounter against the Pumas at the Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit tonight (7pm kick-off). Groom says it is important for his team to generate their own momentum and trust in their abilities if they are to overcome a stubborn Pumas side. Groom says there is an excitement within the Lions camp as they look to secure their place in the semi-finals but they know they will have to play to their standards and win if they are to make the play-offs
