Confirmed: Viljoen to join Lions

The Lions have announced that former Leicester Tigers and Stormers centre EW Viljoen will be joining the Johannesburg-based franchise.

On Monday, the Lions confirmed the signing of Burger Odendaal from the Vodacom Bulls, and have now added Viljoen to their acquisitions.

Viljoen has represented South Africa at schoolboy and U20 levels and made 28 appearances for the Stormers since his debut in 2017.

Last year, the 25-year-old headed to Leicester, but was one of the players set to leave the club amid the coronavirus pandemic.
