• Lions poach four Bulls

    The Golden Lions have signed three Blue Bulls players and are busy drawing up a contract for a fourth.

    Wing Sampie Mastriet, centre Rohan Janse van Rensburg, scrumhalf Lohan Jacobs and lock Marvin Orie are the latest crop of players to leave Loftus, after they fell behind in the pecking order.

    The foursome follow in the footsteps of Robbie Coetzee and Marnitz Boshoff among others, who were disregarded by the Pretoria-based union, but went on to make a name for themselves at the Lions and have caught the eye of Bok coach Heyneke Meyer. 

    All but Orie have officially signed for the Lions, but it's believed the U21 lock's contract is being negotiated and a deal between the parties is imminent.
