Lions coach Ivan van Rooyen admitted after another chastening defeat against the Sharks at the weekend that the franchise is going to have to get some reinforcements to ensure they are competitive in the United Rugby Championship that is set to start next month.

The Lions bowed out of the Currie Cup at Ellis Park with a dismal 56-14 hiding at the hands of the Sharks, which has condemned them to last place on the log.

Having won just two of the nine matches they took the field for, concerns have been expressed over whether the Lions are going to be slaughtered by the even tougher European sides.

“The most logical thing will be to pull players from elsewhere and there are discussions about that going on,” Van Rooyen said.

“There is an opportunity for the company to get some additional hands in the squad. We are understaffed so we have to do it and there is a lot of work going on behind the scenes.”

It is, however, looking likely that Van Rooyen will no longer be at the helm of the side for the URC with the Lions administration openly talking about “restructuring”.

Van Rooyen’s contract, and that of his assistant coaches, ends in October and last place in the Currie Cup is not a good look for someone trying to get a renewal.

While there has been speculation that Lions CEO Rudolf Straeuli, a former Springbok coach, will take over the coaching reins, weekend reports suggested that former Springboks Victor Matfield and Jaque Fourie, a Lions legend, were also being looked at as potential replacement coaches.

Ek voel effe jammer vir Cash. Met so baie beserings aan die squad (voor die WP game het ons op 26 gestaan), was dit altyd n opdraende stryd. Wedstryde wat gekanselleer is op tye wat ons n bietjie momentum gehad het, en hier en daar n twyfelagtige referee call het dinge nie makliker gemaak nie.

Wat die bou relaas betref, dit is soos dit is. Ons het al ons bokke en top spelers verloor. So n span val eenvoudig nie uit die lug nie, so ek weet nie hoe n afrigter in so n situasie nie deur n herbou proses kan gaan nie.

Bygese, die resultate was baie swak, en daar moes lankal iets gedoen gewees het om die situasie aan te spreek. 

Ek dink ook hoe die unie vir Cash aan die diepkant ingegooi het, was ook verkeerd. Ek sou wou sien dat daar n erkende hoofafrigter aangestel was vir die senior span, met Cash wat dalk eers die leisels by die o21 as hoofafrigter kon vat, totdat hy genoeg ervaring as hoofafrigter het.

Al 4 Pumas. Ek weet ook nie of hierdie die beste 4 Pumas is nie. Eddie Fouche was by die Leeus as onder 20 speler so waarom is hy laat gaan as ons hom dan net weer terugvat nou?

Soos ek verstaan is die puma spelers net op n leen basis.
En dat daar nog n paar griquas spelers is wat nog moet besluit of hul wil kom. Weet nie of dit net as loan spelers is nie, maar Ungerer, sal n goeie kopie wees. Adre Smith sal ook great wees.

Ons het n paar baie goeie u/20 spelers. Hul het gesê van hulle gaan kans kry. Hopelik verloor ons hulle nie.

Ek dink darem Eddie is ook beter as Fred as n backup, of selfs n begin 10.

Ek hoop regtig hul kry n haker iewers of gee vir Morne Brandon kans.
Om vir PJ Botha daar te sien, breek my moed.

Eerste ding wat ons moet uitsorteer is die lynstane.

Eddie Fouche was een van die beter jong loskakels in die Curriebeker, maar die ander drie het nie veel indruk gemaak in die wedstryde wat ek gesien het nie. Griekwas se sukses het meestal gedraai om hulle drie losvoorspelers (Steenkamp, van der Merwe en Sirgel). Sal nie omgee om enige van daai drie te kry nie. Nie 'n groot Ungerer fan nie, maar beslis 'n verbetering op Warner en Cronje

Jannie du P was een van die slegste investments tot dusver. Maak erg en onnodife foute. As hy niks in SA bygedra het n nie gaan hy niks vir ons in Europa doen nie. Net hier vir n pay cheque.

Daai Haker van die O/20 span lyk na n handvol. Laat my so bietjie aan Akker van der Merwe dink, net bietjie ronder.

Stem, ek sal Jannie laat gaan. Hy voeg niks tot die span nie. Lyk lui en onfiks. Hoe vinniger hy gaan hoe beter. Nodig beter kwaliteit as ons na ouer spelers kyk.

Hierdie nuwe manne gaan broodnodige diepte verskaf. Die Pumas het beter gevaar as ons in die CC, dus is hul spelers beter as ons spelers. Enige leenspeler van hul af is dus beslis 'n verbetering.

Daai hakker van die Pumas sou ek beslis vir 'n seisoen of twee betrek todat ons jong hakkers ondervinding kan opdoen.
