The Lions have secured the signature of Springbok Jamba Ulengo, who will make his way to Johannesburg franchise in time for the start of the Currie Cup, reports Demè Lucas
Ulengo just need to complete his medical to finalise the contract discussions. It looks like Ulengo will be able to add to the already impressive backline for the Lions when they start building for the 2020 Super Rugby competition.
Ulengo started his rugby in the Free State and was part of the 2005 and 2006 U16 Grant Khomo Week. In 2007 he played in the U18 Academy Week and in 2008 he was part of the Free State U18 Craven Week team.
He played for the Free State in both the U19 and U21 Provincial Championships.
In 2010 and 2012 he was also part of the Shimlas Varsity Cup side.
He was also a prominent member of the SA Sevens side from 2011 to 2014 and also helped the team winning the Gold Medal at the 2013 World Games.
Ulengo came back to fifteens signing with Bulls and played Currie Cup in 2014 for the Blue Bulls and Super Rugby for the Bulls.
He struggled with a knee injury in 2018 and did not play much rugby but was back in action when he signed for the Cheetahs in 2019.
We can expect some more signings as the window has opened for players to make their moves.
