Short and sweet… that was the One-liner Media Release by the Golden Lions Rugby Union!

More days, more strife, at the Lions, what’s new?

Here’s the Official Media Release, verbatim:

The Golden Lions Rugby Union announced this morning that MTN Lions coaches Carlos Spencer (Backline Coach) and Wayne Taylor (Conditioning Coach) had their contracts terminated and were given notice of dismissal on Monday, 31 July 2012.

    Ai toggie!

    Is this a rational decision?

  • 2

    With all the injuries the Lions had I would also have looked twice at the conditioning coach, but I thought Carlos Spencer was very good. Maybe it’s a money thing or maybe preparing for the worst.

    The Lions also confirmed that Paul Willemse, as expected, signed for the Bulls.

  • 4

    And to top it, the Bulls have poached u/20 star lock Paul Willemse as well. This is turning out to be a bad day at the office for the Lions.
    Grant Hattingh, aready on the bench vs his old team mates in the friendly between the Bulls, and Lions, and now Willemse set to follow suit.

    Oh brother, Scrumdown must be seething!

    @ Cheetah4eva:
    Forget about Scrumdown. I am moedeloos. But I tink its a money matter here?

    Rightnow I would rather focus on the Olympics: 3 Golds.

  • 7

    Kazakstan got 3 golds as well lol

    And there goes Elton Janjies as well, mark my words!
    I hope WP scoops him up before he also heads off abroad, for SA rugby’s sake.

    Transvaal has always been one of my favourite teams, I watched my first match at Ellis Park during a family holiday when I still had to sit squeezed between dad and uncle, starry-eyed and gawking at legends such as Martin (glass-eyed) Pelser and Hennie van Zyl……;
    and in later years checking every side step that Jannie ‘The Jinx’ Barnard made as mongrels such as Tiger Norwood, Sakkie Sauerman and ‘Iron Man’ Johan Strauss tore opposing packs apart….;
    and who can forget the flair of Liaam Kirkham with Dries Maritz and Deon Coetzee as link men?

    You name them, ‘white and red’, had them all, ‘legends of the fall’, they were.

    Just to watch Lions’ the management f#ck it up after all these years is like watching the ANC government taking one dip after another; crazy, screwed up old world up there in Gauteng, politically and sports wise.

    Hint please? As a die hard Lions supporter, I would love to know that the light at the end of the tunnel is not an oncoming train.

    @ grootblousmile:

    Jy is mos oor twee weke daar, miskien kan hy afkom Mykonos toe en ‘versie saam sing’ met jou en Kickers, so 120 km van hom af soontoe.

    @ Cheetah4eva:
    No use getting upset anymore.

    When we voted in Kdk on 29th July 2009, there was great hope, but within 3 months he had been infected with Maanieitis.

    The Exco have largely done Fukcall and many of the (formerly disadvantaged) clubs want change.

    The Provincial Government are basically on non-speaking terms with the GLRU, and the biggest development project started in the area in the last 10 years was initiated by an organisation that is basically owned by the Swaziland Rugby Union, and backed by the IRB.

    WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I thank my lucky stars I’m no longer involved.
