If media reports today are to be believed, the GLRU are on a serious shopping spree.
Some of the names on the list include the likes of John Smit, and the Lions are apparently willing to fork out a R4 million rand annual salary cheque for the Bok Captain.
Another big Sharks name on the list is JP Pietersen whose contract, as Smit’s, is expiring at the end of the year. Pietersen is also reported to be on the Bulls’ shopping list.
According to Plum, they are in negotiations with these two players to keep them, but no pen has been put to paper yet.
Other big shots in the Lions’ aim were named too and include Butch James, Joe van Niekerk, BJ Botha and Kanko.
De Klerk did not want to comment on the names of players, but did say that they want about 5 or 6 new players and need senior players to strengthen the Lions side….
And the plot thickens…Tweet
