Cowan "gutted" after losing to Lions

8:20 am on 9 May 2009

The Lions of South Africa have beaten the Highlanders 27-22 in their Super 14 rugby match in Johannesburg.

The game at Ellis Park may not mean anything in the semi-final wash-up but Highlanders captain Jimmy Cowan certainly wasn't happy after throwing away a 19-5 half-time lead.

Cowan says it's gutting to lose after leading by that much at the break and it's also gutting to come away from South Africa with just a point.
