THE GAME BREAKER: Elton Jantjies

Lions to keep attacking in final.

The Lions will die “trying” to win the Super Rugby title tomorrow (final kickoff 9.35am).

Coach Johan Ackermann’s manne have scored 81 tries en route to the final – more than any other team.

And the boss is adamant they will not “go into their shells” with the stakes at their highest. He wants them to keep their attacking game firing.

Conditions are expected to be wet with kickoff at 7.30pm Wellington time.

Ackermann tells SuperSport: “If the weather is bad, we must adapt to it.

“We can’t go into our shells just because it’s wet. This is a once-off opportunity and I want the guys to go out there and enjoy it.

“We will play our natural game and hopefully it will be good enough to score tries as we have done the whole season. That is one of our goals – to score tries.

“But it is still a final and you don’t need bonus points, so you can take the points when you need them.”
