Emirates Lions head coach Ivan van Rooyen named a 28-man squad ahead of his team's final Vodacom Rugby Championship match against Welsh outfit Dragons.

The Johannesburg-based franchise departs on Tuesday, 17 May 2022.

Emirates Lions Head Coach, Ivan van Rooyen:

"We're quite pleased with the squad we've selected ahead of our final URC match in Newport against the Dragons."

"As mentioned last week, it gives us an opportunity as a franchise to cast our eye towards the future, and we believe that the bulk of this group will form part of that core."

"Once again, this approach is in line with our strategy of developing within our structures and some of these names are proof of that."

"In saying that, Dragons will be a tough outfit to play in their own backyard. However, it offers a few our players an opportunity to impress."

Geen Simelane ook nie, so wat was dan die punt om hulle te gebruik het in die CC game, as dit was om die URC span reg te kry? Moes ons nie dalk die kombinasies getoets het nie?

dalk het hulle gesien Simelane se hart is nie meer by die Leeus nie, hy was maar nerens in die wedstryd teen die Bulle en is vroeg afgehaal

Wat is die doel daarvan om talent te bou as hulle deur die top unies gekoop gaan word oor 2-3jaar? Ons het weer ons top spelers verloor aan die Sharks en ons A span het laas week teen die bulle se C span verloor.

Die huidige strategie werk nie en die URC is definitief nie die kompetisie waar gebou moet word nie. Dit is hartseer dat ons van die 2de beste klub span (3 super rugby finale in n ry) tot waar ons nou is geval het. 

Wat dinge nog erger maak is nie een van die leeu spelers behalwe vir Ruan Dreyer wat terug gekeur het na SA terug gekom het na die Leeus. Daar is ernstig fout en dit is my opinie dat die Cheetahs se curriebeker span beter as ons sal vaar in die URC.

Odendaal is uitgelaat want die Leeus wil die 3 jong senters kans gee met die oog op die toekoms. Sadie het Covid. Simelane het griep. Emmanuel is nog nie oor sy enkelbesering nie

Cheetahs het hul kans gehad. 

Sorry (not sorry) vir hulle.

Met al die spelers wat ons nou gaan verloor, glo ek ons sal steeds volgende jaar beter vaar as wat die Cheetahs sou. Die Cheetahs het nog minder die vermoe as ons om 2 vol spanne, gelyktydig in 2 kompetisies te laat speel.

Daar is beslis probleme by die unie, maar ek sou nie so ver gaan as om te sê ons is besig om ons kans te verspeel nie. Bietjie vroeg daarvoor. Soos ek verstaan gaan die URC en CC nie weer in die toekoms gelyktydig plaasvind nie, so dit gaan klaar ook baie help.

Wel volgende seisoen neem ons deel in 3 kompetisies, so daar gaan meer games wees en dus meer beserings, ens. Weet ook nie waar die CC dan gaan plaas vind nie as die URC van so Oktober se kant af tot Mei/Junie loop. So ons gaan pretty much nog steeds genoeg speler diepte moet hê om 2 spanne te kan speel as mens spelers wil rus en nog moet af staan vir Bokke (lol, die laaste deel is net 'n grap).
Go LIONS!!!!!

Dink jy kan vergeet van Matt wat begin, hulle sal vir Rass kies. Rabz vs Stean is die ander ene, nie seker wie hulle verkies nie.

MORE, VAN WYK COMBINE FOR LIONS' FINAL URC CLASH

 

 

Emirates Lions head coach Ivan van Rooyen and his management have selected a new-look midfield pairing in the form of Matt More and Henco van Wyk ahead of his team's final Vodacom United Rugby Championship match of the season against the Dragons this Saturday. Manuel Rass will provide cover from the bench.

 

Instrumental lock forward Reinhard Nothnagel wears the captain's armband in a fixture where the Johannesburg-based outfit will look to finish on a high in Newport.

 

Earlier this week, the Emirates Lions mentor stressed the need to look ahead, and his team's final URC fixture is the ideal opportunity to explore new combinations.

 

"As mentioned last week, it gives us an opportunity as a franchise to cast our eye towards the future, and we believe that this group will form part of that core."

 

"They'll be a few guys in the match 23 who will be relishing the opportunity to make a name for themselves against international opposition."

 

"In saying that, Dragons will be a tough outfit to play at a vibrant Rodney Parade. We've planned and trained well this week so the guys we’ll be up for it come Saturday,” concluded Van Rooyen.

 

Elsewhere, exciting loose forward Jarod Cairns and gifted tighthead prop Asenathi Ntlabakanye could make an appearance from the bench.

 

Kick-off is at 16:00 SA time.

1. JP Smith

2. Jaco Visagie

Rabz is beter as Stean om ons afskoppe te jaag. Ek is nogal vies oor Stean se beenkop fout in die laaste Curriebeker wedstryd waarvoor hy 'n geel kaart gekry het, ek sou hom 'n week laat rus het daarvoor. JP verdien seker om te begin op loskop, hy is 'n goeie baldraer en hy en Sti skrum ewe goed. Venter op slot is nie 'n probleem nie, Ruben het baie begin die jaar en verdien 'n ruskans

Wat dink julle.. gaan ons die wen kry met hierdie span? Baie min ervaring op die veld... veral vir 'n wegwedstryd anderkant die waters.

Gaan moeilik wees, as ons net nie dom foute maak nie sal dit reeds help.
