Four Junior Springboks, Wandisile Simelane, Jeanluc Cilliers, Reinhardt Nothnagel and Len Massyn have been contracted by the Lions Rugby Company (Pty) Ltd.

Rudolf Straeuli, CEO, emphasised that “we aim to develop players and keep key junior players in the system. That is vital to our succession plan.”

Other key players from the winning Currie Cup teams in 2016 have also renewed their contracts ensuring sustainability throughout the junior and senior procurement, namely:

Bradley Thain
Eddie Fouché
HP van Schoor
Jan-Louis la Grange
Len Massyn
Leo Kruger
Reinhard Nothnagel
Siya Masuku
Tyreeq February

To secure top Under 19 players for 2018 has also been a key objective for the Lions Rugby Company. Bart Schoeman, Manager of the High Performance, elaborate: “Ensuring the signing of top players from our local schools have been the main aim this year. Only after signing “home-grown” players in key positions did we go out to fill the gaps with the next best”.

“We have a few negotiations still outstanding but are proud to welcome the following players to the Lions Rugby family,” he said.
