Once again the Mt Albert club will once again feature in New Zealand's Bartercard Cup final to be played next Sunday at Ericsson Stadium.
A tough battle yesterday against the Counties Maunkau Jets saw the last year's Bartercard Cup champions Mt Albert, come out the victors by 29-22.
Up against a bigger Jets pack, the Lions had to overcome their loss a week earlier to the Bulls. Up 12-10 at the break in wet conditions, the Lions capitalised on the errors made by the Counties Manukau side.
With 10 minutes remaining in the game, and the score a narrow 24-22, a try to the Lions, followed by a Buckingham field goal, set up the win for the Lions, and a spot in the Grand Final.
