Freebase

  1. Lions

    The Lions, known as the Cats between the 1998 and 2006 seasons, are a South African professional Rugby union football team who competed in the Super Rugby competition. They have not achieved great success in the competition, finishing at the bottom of the table six times. However, they have managed to reach the semifinal stage twice. The Lions play in a red and white strip. The team faced relegation from the Super 14 after the Southern Spears won a court ruling that they be included in the competition in place of the lowest ranked South African team in the 2006 competition. However, the Spears and the country's national federation, the South African Rugby Union, reached a settlement of their legal case. By the terms of the settlement, announced on November 16, 2006, the financially troubled Spears abandoned their case. However, as the Lions finished bottom for the 2012 Super Rugby table they were replaced in the 2013 competition by the Southern Kings. The Lions will have the opportunity to regain a place in the 2014 Super Rugby tournament, playing a two leg playoff against the South African team that finishes bottom in the 2013 Super Rugby season.

Examples of lions in a Sentence

  1. Paul Udoto:

    Lions have a special place in Kenyans' livelihood and conservation efforts. Other than being the symbol for national strength, they are among the Big Five, a major attraction for visitors to Kenya. The trend of lion population decline is disturbing and every effort needs to be made to ensure that Kenya either stabilises its population at the current population of 2,000 lions or increases the numbers to an ecologically acceptable level.

  2. Alexandra Swanson:

    What we found was that they were using the same areas, but cheetahs showed up a few hours after lions left... sort of like a timeshare.

  3. Anthony Bove:

    My father joked, 'If those were two lions, I wouldn't have made it,' he's a really tough guy.

  4. African Proverb:

    Until lions have their historians, tales of the hunt shall always glorify the hunter.

  5. Mark Jones:

    There may be as few as 1,000 lions left across the whole of western central Africa, and given that these lions almost certainly belong to that same sub-species, every single population becomes really, really important.
