Kriel going nowhere


As usual South African media has nothing better to do than spreading rumors maybe because their is no rugby around to report on.

The newest rumor doing the rounds is that Lions and Springbok Jaco Kriel has signed a contract with Gloucester where his former Lions mentor Johan Ackermann is coaching now.

The report stated that Kriel have signed  a three year deal with the English club. Kriel has signed a two year deal with Japanese club Kubota Spears which will only make him available for Gloucester in 2019


In Touch Sports have quickly responded on twitter that Kriel is committed to the Lions and have signed nothing.


Best solution for supporters is to take not just a little bit of salt, but a lot with what is being reported in the media this next couple of weeks.

  1. Good news for the Lions… good news for the Boks. His injury was felt immediately in the back row in the tests… him and Marx in tandem at the breakdown were brilliant.
