Match report from referee Andre Britt:
Union arrived with a well-coached team that was younger and fitter than the Lions. Both teams endeavored to run the ball in excellent conditions. However, dropped passes and too many errors led
to a stop/start match.
With a bigger pack and speedy backs, Union dominated the game for the first 60 minutes or so. Following several substitutions by both teams, the Lions fought back and scored a couple of late tries that closed the final margin to 8 points.
