Another South African is making his way accross to Australia to play Super Rugby! The Twitterverse reports that MTN Lions utility backline player, Lionel Cronjé, has signed and is is off to Canberra to join the Brumbies for next year’s Super Rugby competition.
Lionel Cronjé moved to the MTN Golden Lions with hopes of cracking the nod in the run-on side but has failed largely in 2013 to do just that, with Marnitz Boshoff and Elton Jantjies largely being preferred as starting options.
Cronjé, who mostly plays in the flyhalf berth is also at home at fullback and in the centres.
Lionel joined the Blue Bulls for the 2012 season from Western Province, then moved to the MTN Golden Lions for the 2013 season.
The 24-year old announced the news of his departure via his official Twitter account on Monday.
(sic) Fotos done!sad to say cheers to all the lads today…as my stay at lions..is over..short lived but great experience!
Exciting new and exciting challenge..off to @s14_brumbies
