Southern Lions 2nd fifteen overhauled Midlands in another tightly fought encounter at the Success Complex. Lions were once again slow out of the blocks and allowed Midlands to build a strong lead early on. Lions woke up after some words from the skipper and closed the gap to 5 points by half-time. Unlike the previous week, Lions maintained control scoring three tries without reply to gain a bonus point. Late on, Midlands fought back and scored another try but Lions comfortably held on to win.
