Sharks CEO Eduard Coetzee fired a shot at the Lions following their resistance to the exit of Vincent Tshituka and Carlu Sadie, saying “players who are happy do not leave a team”.
Vincent Tshituka has been named Vodacom United Rugby Championship Player of the Month – the first forward to do so – after a strong April campaign for the Lions.
The Sharks have announced the signing of Lions loose forward Vincent Tshituka on a three-year deal.
The Lions marked their final home game of the Vodacom United Rugby Championship season with a spirited comeback victory over Benetton on Saturday.
Vincent Tshituka says every effort is being made to secure his South African citizenship in order to make him eligible for Springbok selection.
Although he is still working towards getting his South African citizenship, in-form flank Vincent Tshituka must have grabbed the attention of the Springbok selectors, according to Lions head coach Ivan van Rooyen.
Lions flank Vincent Tshituka picked up his third man of the match award in four weeks as the Lions continued their resurgence in the Vodacom United Rugby Championship with a win over Edinburgh on Saturday.
The Lions will field both Tshituka brothers in the Vodacom United Rugby Championship match against Welsh side Ospreys at Ellis Park on Friday.
Vincent and Emmanuel Tshituka are back as the Lions roll out the red carpet for Cardiff at Ellis Park on Sunday in the Vodacom United Rugby Championship.
The Lions are working hard behind the scenes to sort out the paperwork issue preventing Vincent and Emmanuel Tshituka from travelling with the team to Dublin to face Leinster, assistant coach Ricardo Loubscher says.
