A classic performance by the Lions earned them a win when they thumped Kavaliers 57-17 in an Absa Currie Cup game at Ellis Park Stadium on Saturday.

This victory has elevated the Doornfontein team from sixth spot to third on the log.

After garnering 11 points from four games, they are trailing log leaders Sharks and second-placed Blue Bulls by three and two points respectively from the same number of matches.

Coach Eugene Eloff hopes his side will repeat the performance against Griquas in Kimberley on Saturday.

Griquas conquered Western Province 21-20 in a pulsating encounter on Saturday.

At Loftus, the Cheetahs suffered their second defeat of the season when they succumbed 31-23 to the Blue Bulls.

In Durban, the Sharks showed Falcons no mercy when they drubbed them 28-10.
