Lions sign Paarl Boys’ coach
- 04 Mar 2018
Paarl Boys' director of rugby Sean Erasmus will join the Lions on 1 November.
Erasmus has had great success with Paarl Boys', who achieved a 43-match winning streak under him, while becoming SA's No 1-ranked school.
'Sean will bolster the ranks of our coaches, which already consist of some sterling names like Mziwakhe Nkosi, Bafana Nhleko, Wessel Roux and Herkie Kruger,' said Lions CEO Rudolf Straeuli.
SA Rugby recently announced that Nhleko will act as assistant coach for the SA U20 side this year. The Lions’ Super Rugby defence coach Joey Mongalo was part of the SA U20 coaching staff in 2016.
The Lions’ juniors have dominated the domestic competitions in recent years, with the U19s successfully defending their national title in 2017 after winning it in 2016, and the U21 side winning the competition in 2016 and reaching the semi-finals last year.
