We have seen it before….The Bulls do not believe in a players and the Lions grab them up.
In the past week we have seen that Bulls new Director of Rugby have again deemed that players like Burger Odendaal and Jaco Visagie is not good enough for his squad.
They have both join the Lions as did Duncan Matthews, Jamba Ulengo, Roelof Smit, Andre Warner and Divan Rossouw.
The you have Dan Kriel who was with the Bulls and then joined the Stormers who are now base in Johannesburg to further hsi career.
The Lions has also added EW Viljoen, a former Stormers who joins the Lions form Leicester.
This all happened before as Brenden Nel explained in his article on SuperSport.
In Johan Ackermann and Swys De Bruin days at the Lions players like Marvin Orie, Rohan Janse van Rensburg, Courtnal Skosan, Andries Coetzee, Robbie Coetzee where not deemed good enough but found a place at the Lions to all become Springboks.
Maybe the Lions is that union that take the leftovers from other unions and make them Springboks. We will closely follow the progress off the current players that joined the Lions.
