The Lions Rugby Company would like to take the opportunity to thank all of their staff and players for understanding and embracing the difficult and very challenging times that was forced upon them by COVID-19.

It truly takes special people to make a place special and the Lions family will always remain true to what they stand for, even in trying times.

As one of the terms of the Industry Salary Plan (ISP) to deal with the repercussions of Covid-19, SA Rugby introduced a 21-day window allowing for players and staff to cancel their current contracts with immediate effect.

With that said, we would like to announce that we will part ways with the following people who have been an integral part of the Lions for some time:

-         Malcolm Marx

-         Ruan Vermaak

-         Tyrone Green

-         Shaun Reynolds

-         Neil de Bruin

Rudolf Straeuli, Chief Executive Officer of the Lions Rugby Company, thanked them for their valuable contributions, some of them having formed part of the Lions since their school-going days.

“There is always a big sense of loss and sadness when we lose family members. We wish them well on their journey ahead and thank them for some very special times spent with the Lions,” Straeuli said.

The Lions Rugby Company and EPS (Pty) Ltd have appointed a COVID-19 task team that will ensure their premises are safe for staff to return to work once prohibited to do so.

Kannie glo Green waai nie. Malcolm het ons geweet is n storie, maar nie verwag met die "gap" wat ons hom gegee het dat hy nou waai nie.

Regtig jammer oor Marx, Green & Reynolds wat waai.
Ons het rerig oor die afgelope tyd goeie spelers verloor. Een van die dae speel ons span weer om die hout lepel of erger, vir relegasie. Swaar tye wat voorle.

Ek is baie bly dat Neil de Bruin waai. In sy 3 jaar of wat as aanvalsafrigter het dit gevoel of ons aanval agteruit gaan. Ja, daar is baie ander faktore wat bydra, maar hy moet die grootste deel van die blaam daarvoor dra voel ek. Lassjaar het ons nog 'n dominante skrum gehad, maar ons aanval en balhantering het definitief agteruit gegaan
Go LIONS!!!!!

Hopelik steek die nuwe en jong manne hulle hande op om die oop posisie the vul.

As n speller wil gaan laat hy gaan dit werk nou maar net so.
 
Hopelik sien ons weer eendag rugby. As ook wen leeu rugby.

Al 5 is n groot terugslag, maar ons moes dit seker maar sien kom het. Ek is net verbaas oor Marx, veral nadat hy gese het hy kan nie wag om terug te wees by sy Leeus familie nie. Die afrigters moet nou solank vir PJ Botha en daai baby bok haker begin blootstelling gee. Hulle het beide die potensiaal om ver te kom.
Op 10 het ons darem vir Lombard, indien Elton ook waai, met Tiaan Swanepoel en James Mollentze wat beide eintlik losskakels is.
Die feit dat die gebeur terwyl ons besig is om in elk geval te herbou, kan dalk vorentoe n bedekte seen wees.

Ek hoop maar daai spelers gaan eerder oorsee, want dit sal darem baie sleg wees as ouens soos Marx en Tyrone na een van die ander SA franchises toe gaan...

Ouens, waarom is ons die enigste SA span wat spelers lek? Sharks het aangekondig hul verloor 1 speler. Al hul ander bokke bly. Ek is nie bewus van enige WP bokke/spelers wat waai nie. Bulls koop links en reg nuwe spelers, nevermind die WC winning coach wat hul ook gekoop het. 

So wat de F0K gaan by die leeus aan???

bly Neil is gone.

Baie sad Om Marx en green tea verloor. Altwee nog jonk en altwee kon leeus greats gewees het.

Ek dink spelers waai , dit is wat dit is. If you want loyalty buy a dog (more prevalent today than ever , millennials are notorious job hoppers)

Having said all that , we have lost a massive amount of players in a very short space of time. We will need a massive effort to get back to the 2017 “glory days”

We have the list of players deserting the seemingly sinking ship, any news of player recruitment? The other unions have announced signings already.

I'm not too sure we have the money to recruit more players.

Losing players is part & parcel of team sports, but losing your best as well as the next generation of up and coming talent (as we have for the past few seasons) , does not inspire confidence.

Losing Vermaak and especially Green really hurts. Marx, sad as it is - is no surprise. Once players reach global star level they are bound to leave sooner rather than later.

What is interesting (or frightening) is that the Sharks, Stormers and Bulls were able to keep players by talking to them and the players buying into the union's project. Sharks players turned down silly money and Stormers players, despite the financial mess WP is in, backed the coach. Bulls have star pull with JW at the helm (love him or hate him, he has gravitas as a man that brings success).

What that says about the current state the Lions find themselves in is...worrying.

PSDT cancelled his WP contract , will probably leave.

And can I also just give a huge shout out to Elton Jantjies , probably the most loyal player in lions history (close call with baywatch and doppies)
