Lions duo extend contracts

Lions front-row duo Sti Sithole and Jan-Henning Campher have both put pen to paper on contract extensions with the Johannesburg side.

Both players have signed one-year extensions and will be available to the Lions until the end of 2021.

Sithole – who came through the Western Province structures – has been with the Lions since joining from the Southern Kings in 2017.

‘I am happy and excited to extend my stay here at the Lions,’ the 27-year-old said.

‘Johannesburg and the Lions have become my second home and I am very thrilled about the great things to come.’

Hooker Campher, 23, moved across the Jukskei to join the Lions from the Vodacom Bulls in 2019. The youngster was backed ahead of the more experienced Pieter Jansen to start a couple of Vodacom Super Rugby matches this year.

‘I am blessed and honoured with another golden opportunity to inspire others,’ Campher said.

‘I am looking forward to some more great memories in a Lions jersey.’
