To be fair, the format actually aided the Lions in reaching the final. Statistically they were not the 2nd best team in the competition and under the old system they'd have had to have played the Hurricanes in NZ. They're just not good enough to beat the 'Saders.Thats it, glad I cant watch. TBH, the format seriously penalizes the team that has to travel for a final. Not an excuse, Crusaders are just too good.
