The Lions claimed a bonus point as they cruised to a 43-5 Super Rugby victory over the Blues at Ellis Park.

Experienced centre Lionel Mapoe crossed three times in the second half amid a seven-try rout of the Auckland-based team, with Warren Whiteley, Courtnall Skosan, Deon van Rensburg and Warwick Tecklenburg also scoring.

The victory sees the Lions climb above the Stormers to the summit of the South African Group.
