"I think every team in the world fears playing in front of a full Ellis Park"

All eyes will be on the The Lions as they go in search of a rare South African Super Rugby success as they chase a maiden title against seven-time winners the Crusaders in Saturday’s final at Ellis Park.

Murray Ingram, Connect Sports Academy says he is hopeful that the Lions will be the title holders and adds that a win will be a fantastic fairy tale ending for coach, Johan Ackermann.

It's been a long but as we saw last week, the Crusaders will definitely be up against it.

I think one thing you need to take into account is 60 000 Ellis Park crowd says Ingram.

I think its one of the most difficult grounds to play at. I think every team in the world fears playing in front of a full Ellis Park.
