All the Lions’ Currie Cup heroes except for Kwagga Smith, who is contracted for National Sevens duty, have been retained for SuperRugby while nine other stalwarts have strengthened the squad.

Flanker Derick Minnie returns after a long injury lay-off and winger Ruan Combrink and centre Harold Vorster have also been added to the Super group after missing some Currie Cup action due to injury.

Springbok flyhalf Elton Jantjies, centre Lionel Mapoe and hooker Akker van der Merwe, with Tecklenburg, returns from overseas duty.

The new squad members are former Pumas scrumhalf Faf de Klerk, Leopards number nine Dillon Smit, Leopards lock Robert Kruger and Pumas prop Corné Fourie, who are all full-blooded Lions now.

    Are there any team that will be able to beat the Lions? I don’t think so!! I also think there are going to be such GOOD competition between the guys for that jersey. We stuck with the Lions during bad times and now it AWESOME to be the NR 1 Supporter!!!
