Sharks v British and Irish Lions (2021 Tour)
July 10 @ 6:00 pm SAST
The British and Irish Lions play their third tour match before the 3 test match series against the Springboks, taking on the Bulls of Super Rugby in Pretoria. The Lions return to the Loftus Versfeld Stadium, having played the second test of the 2009 tour in which they dramatically lost 28-25 and ultimately lost the series (see below).
The Lions were due to face the Bulls but the opponents were changed to the Sharks after a Covid-19 outbreak among the Bulls players and staff.
