Golden Lions coach Eugene Eloff says it will take an ‘all round’ performance, not individual brilliance, for his side to beat the Sharks in their Absa Currie Cup semi-final in Durban on Saturday.

The Lions go into the semi-final with lots of momentum, on the back of a four-match victory march – which includes two consecutive cleans sheets, a 75-0 hammering of the Boland Cavaliers and a 28-0 victory over Griquas.

Not surprising then that Eloff is confident that his team’s defensive capabilities will again play a crucial role as they try to upset the more fancied Sharks.

However, to achieve this they will have to stick rigidly to the game plan.

“I believe it will take an all-round performance from us to beat the Sharks on Saturday,” Eloff told this website.

“I don’t think that any one aspect of the game is more important than the other and the backline and the forwards will have to be on top of their game on Saturday.

“We have to keep focused on getting our own play right,” he added.

Despite the Lions entering the game as the underdogs, having lost 3-21 to the Sharks in their previous encounter, Eloff is confident that they will be up to the challenge.

“Everyone will up their game on the day,” he explained.
