Lions coach John Mitchell has confirmed that No 8 Josh Strauss will captain the Lions in the upcoming Super Rugby tournament and centre Doppies la Grange will be vice-captain.
Strauss and La Grange were at the helm when the Golden Lions won the Currie Cup last season and both also captained the Lions in the Super Rugby competition in 2011.
In announcing that Strauss and La Grange will again be at the helm, Mitchell pointed out that the side has many leaders and a number of players capable of leading the Lions in the competition.
They have grown into their shared leadership roles as a team.
Cobus Grobbelaar, Wikus van Heerden and Franco van der Merwe have all captained at Super Rugby level.
