JOHANNESBURG, South Africa (AP) -- The Lions continued their unexpectedly bright start to rugby's Super 15 season when they beat the Blues 39-36 in a seesaw battle at Ellis Park on Saturday.

Although the hosts were outscored five tries to three by the team from Auckland, Marnitz Boshoff landed four penalties and two dropped goals to give them their third win in five games since returning to the competition.

The Lions missed out on Super Rugby in 2013 when they lost their place to the Southern Kings, and were expected to struggle after earning their way back into the tournament through a playoff victory.

However Saturday's win put them fourth in the standings, while the Blues were 13th.
