CRAIG LEWIS picks a form South African XV based on performances in round four of Super Rugby.

In a rather uninspiring weekend of action from a South African perspective, the one bright light came from Johannesburg, where the Lions produced a rousing performance to rout the Reds. Understandably, then, a host of their standout players dominate the form XV.

The Bulls did manage to secure their first win of the season when they battled past the Sunwolves despite a red card to Renaldo Bothma, but they were far from convincing.

Similarly, the Sharks relied on a considerable dose of good fortune to overcome a gallant Kings side, while a weak Cheetahs outfit slumped to a heavy defeat against the Jaguares in Argentina.
