The union believes there are ‘irregularities’ with the Springbok’s move to England, especially given that his agent has been suspended for three years.

Golden Lions chief executive Rudolf Straeuli is staying put with the union, and he is going to throw the regulation book at Gloucester in response to Springbok lock Franco Mostert’s move to England.

There were some irregularities involving Mostert’s signature with the club, according to Straeuli, and they would do their best to keep him at the Lions.

“Franco is still contracted by us and we are still in the middle of a dispute with Gloucester,” he said.

“He must honour his contract, with all respect to Franco, but my board told me I must act against Gloucester.

“His agent had been suspended for three years and it has happened before with Lyon in France, and the second time we said ‘no’.”

Gloucester are coached by former Lions mentor Johan Ackermann, who’s already poached son Ruan, Jaco Kriel and Ruan Dreyer from Ellis Park.

Straeuli also explained why he postponed the Lions team announcement until late yesterday for Friday night’s must-win Currie Cup game against the Pumas in Nelspruit.

“We wanted to pick the best possible side with a few guys we got back from the Boks.

“They have done medicals on all the Boks. Malcolm Marx and Warren Whiteley (both contracted players) won’t be available this weekend, but Lionel Mapoe, Elton Jantjies, Aphiwe Dyantyi and Franco were the guys we were waiting on.

“They were training full-out with the team but we were just waiting for them to be cleared.

“Bok consultant Swys de Bruin’s input had also proved invaluable,” Straeuli said.

Scrumhalf Nic Groom, taking over from lock Marvin Orie, will captain the side for the first time.

Lions: Sylvian Mahuza, Wandi Simelane, Lionel Mapoe, Howard Mnisi, Courtnall Skosan, Elton Jantjies, Nic Groom (c), Hacjivah Dayimani, Pikkie de Villiers, James Venter, Marvin Orie, Rhyno Herbst, Jacobie Adriaanse, Corne Fourie, Sti Sithole. Bench: Pieter Jansen, Danie Mienie, Chergin Fillies, Driaan Bester, Len Massyn, Dillon Smit, Shaun Reynolds.

Mmmm... Miskien moet Franco maar net begin om sy kontrakte te eerbiedig...

Unfortunately agents don't earn much when their customers stay at a club for too long. And players will listen to their agents. But unfortunately for a number of players, this particular agent was a real low life. Goosen is the most high profile victim. Franco, Boeboes and a number of other players have suffered because of him.
