Lions and Springbok lock Marvin Orie has been linked with a move to the Leicester Tigers.
According to Rugby Pass and the Bristol Post, the 27-year-old Orie caught the attention of Leicester’s scouts during his loan spell at the Welsh club, the Ospreys during last year’s World Cup.
Orie joined the Lions in 2017 after a five-year stint at the Vodacom Bulls. He went on to win three Test caps for the Springboks between 2018 and 2019.
Orie has been named in the Lions’ starting lineup for Saturday’s crucial away game against the Rebels in Melbourne.
