Lions unveil new look
SUPER RUGBY SPOTLIGHT: The Lions, losing finalists for the last three years, unveiled their new look for 2019.
Edgar Rathbone, Managing Director of EPS (Pty) Ltd, said he was thrilled about the new look of the jerseys.
“The journey we took this year was inspired by the pursuit for perfection and a fresh approach to the game,” Rathbone said.
“We wanted to create a jersey design that matched that renewed passion the team has had and the design approach was to have it look nothing like any previous home Super Rugby jerseys while still leaving the team and their fans in a sense of awe.
“Both jerseys have a triangular motif included in their designs, which symbolically emphasizes the strong connection between the three key components of #LIONSPRIDE namely Feel it. Live it. Own it.
“A symbol of the unbreakable bond between the Lions players, the Lions supporters, partners and our iconic stadium [Ellis Park],” he concluded.
