Lions in talks with Kwagga

The Lions have confirmed that they have begun discussions with Kwagga Smith as they look to reacquire the services of the Springbok flank.

This past weekend Smith was linked with a return to the Blitzboks set-up in order to make a play for Olympic squad selection, while there was also the suggestion that the Sharks were interested in luring him to Durban.

The 26-year-old joined Japanese club side Yamaha Jubilo on a permanent basis after a successful World Cup campaign with the Springboks in 2019, and now it appears the Lions will hope to have him back in Johannesburg – perhaps after another sevens stint.
