The Lions will complete their tour of New Zealand without coach Swys de Bruin, whilst defence coach Joey Mongalo is facing an internal disciplinary hearing.

The longstanding mentor has returned to South Africa ahead of the team’s Super Rugby Round 10 encounter with the Chiefs in Hamilton on Friday.

Lions Rugby Company CEO Rudolf Straeuli confirmed that De Bruin is on his way back from New Zealand.

“He is returning home for personal reasons,” Straeuli told @rugby365com.

Straeuli confirmed that Ivan van Rooyen, the team’s 2018 Currie Cup coach, will take charge of the team in Hamilton on Friday.

A decision about the coaching position will be finalised once there is more clarity about De Bruin’s situation.

“He [De Bruin] informed me last night [Wednesday] of the issues and we haven’t had much time, “Straeuli said.

“They are already in matchday mode [it was the early hours of Friday morning] and I did not want to disturb the players too much,” the Lions CEO said.

Team manager Mustapha Boomgaard will take charge of the off-field matters.

This development makes the return of captain Warren Whiteley all the more important for the Lions.

Whiteley will lead the team for the first time since he suffered a pectoral major muscle tear in the Lions’ Round Two encounter with the Stormers back in February.

After Friday’s encounter with the Chiefs, the Lions complete their tour with a match against the Crusaders in Christchurch next Friday.

* Meanwhile the Lions confirmed that Mongalo has returned home – along with De Bruin and Springbok wing Courtnall Skosan.

Skosan’s return home is to be with his father, who is gravely ill.

Mongalo, who was charged with indecent assault on a Sydney hotel worker, was found guilty and ‘sentenced’ by a Sydney court this week.

The nature of the sentence was not revealed in any of the media reports.

The 34-year-old appeared in the Downing Centre Local Court in Sydney on Wednesday, where Magistrate Thompson sanctioned the franchise’s defence guru after he was found guilty on April 12.

Mongalo will now be subjected to an internal disciplinary hearing, according to Straeuli.

However, he referred @rugby365com to a formal statement and would not elaborate on the issue.

“The Lions Rugby Company, in consideration of the court ruling handed down in the matter of Joey Mongalo, hereby confirms that it respects the judicial processes of the Australian Government and the subsequent court ruling in this matter,” the statement said.

“The Lions Rugby Company considers misconduct related to Assault with the Act of Indecency, particularly serious and a direct violation of Lions Rugby Company values and culture.

“The Lions Rugby Company will follow the normal internal disciplinary processes regarding the matter.”

Straeuli made it clear there will be “no further comment” on the matter until the Code of Conduct process has concluded.

Ek kan nie verstaan dat hulle hom ooit die pos gegee het nie. Ek hoop net hulle skrik nou wakker en stel n ordentlike wereldklas verdedigings afrigter in sy plek aan.
Moo-Mamma, Moo-Papa, MooMa, Mei-Mei. BooBoo en Snif-snaf, ou Stinkie daar by. Almal bly saam in die Moo vallei!

Dit klink of daar n moontlikheid is dat Swys dalk nie weer gaan terugkom nie, of lees ek dit verkeerd?

Om terug te kom na Joey, ek dink die rede hoekom hy aangestel was, is oor die sukses wat hy by die jong spanne gehad het.

Miskien, maar ek glo die Unie sou dit genoem het as dit beplan was.

Kom ons hou op om alles negatief te sien wat die Unie doen. Kom ons glo dat Strauli en kie weet wat hulle doen en kom ons gee bietjie al ons ondersteuning aan hulle en hou op om altyd oor alles te kla. As daar iets negatief was sou die span beslis nie so goed vandag gespeel het!

Kom weer? Die hoof afrigter los die span n paar ure voor n wedstryd en vlieg huistoe, en ons moet nou ophou oor alles kla? Ek soek ook wat jy rook..

Ek rook nie iets kom ons respekteer die persoonlike redes almal het een of ander tyd persoonlike redes wat ons moet uitsorteer wat ons ook now toelaat om by werk te wees seker ons sal nog hoor wat dit is. Weet  Swys sal now span net in steek laat as daar nie goeie rede is hy was nog altyd baie loyaal teenoor Lions

My comment was oor jy gesê het ons moet ophou negatief wees oor alles. Maar ons verdedigings afrigter is sopas skuldig gevind in aus hof en ons hoof afrigter vlieg terug huistoe ure voor n game.. Nou mag ons niks daaroor sê nie?

Laat ons nou maar wag om te hoor wat swys se probleem is ja. Wat dit ookal is, dit is nie n gesonde situasie nie. Die span het great gedoen om nie geaffekteer te wees deur die off field issues nie. Dink nie ons sou dit sonder ww kon doen nie...

Ja verdediging coach negatief maar ons weet al lankal daarvan te minste kan Leeus nou maklik v hom ontslae raak maar ons weet nog nie wat Swys se persoonlike redes is. Hier was al baie negatiewe kommentaar oor Swys op die forum selfs voor hierdie verwikkeling. Maar ons het gesien dit het  span nie negatief beinvloed
