JOHANNESBURG - Despite leading the South African conference the Lions have been far from convincing recently.

Captain Warren Whiteley says they will step it up this Saturday when they take on the Bulls at Ellis Park.

The match against their neighbours will determine whether they manage to win the SA conference.

“We were close to finding that two weekends ago just one or two things that the sharks did really, really well but we were close, we were finding our rhythm, putting pressure on.”

“We’re getting there but it’s not going to be easy. The bulls are a different kettle of fish, they put you under pressure in different areas of the field and they play an exciting brand of rugby. They are going to test us, we are going to have to be alert,” added the Lions captain.
