Bok fullback signs for Lions
TRANSFER NEWS: The Lions have bolstered their backline stocks once again ahead of the 2022/2023 United Rugby Championship season.
The Johannesburg franchise revealed that Springbok fullback Andries Coetzee will be returning to Gauteng for another stint.
Coetzee joins the Lions from Italian club Benetton, who he represented between 2021 to 2022.
He made nine appearances for Benetton in a season that was hampered by injury.
Before that, he had a stint with Japanese club Kintetsu Liners.
He has 13 Test caps for the Springboks.
This latest signing comes after it was revealed that Rynhardt Jonker and Marius Louw will be joining the Lions as well.
Jonker was part of the Griquas squad that hosted this year’s Currie Cup Final against the Pumas.
Meanwhile, Louw was a key member of the Sharks’ backline in the latter stages of the current season.
