Dylan Smith and Vincent Tshituka have both put pen to paper on contract extensions with the Lions, the union announced on Thursday.
Smith has represented the Lions since high school, having played for the U18 side during the 2011 Craven Week before progressing to their U19 team.
The 25-year-old loosehead prop made his Vodacom Super Rugby debut in 2016, coming through alongside KES teammate Malcolm Marx.
Tshituka, a former learner of Northcliff High, has made three appearances since making his debut this year.
The flank started playing rugby in Grade 8 as a wing, only moving to the loose trio in Grade 10.
The LRC is proud to announce that prop @Dy1Smith & loose-forward Vincent Tshituka have both put pen to paper to continue their journey with the Lions. Both are local players with Smith having matriculated at King Edward VII School in Joburg & Tshituka from Northcliff High. pic.twitter.com/CgoIBthKMc
