A report on OFM earlier today indicates that the Lions have signed Lionel Mapoe. This was hinted at a few weeks ago, but given that Mapoe is still going to court to try and get out of his Cheetahs contract to join the Sharks, we dismissed it as nothing but mischief.
We really don’t know anything about this latest development yet – as Mapoe’s agent is not currently answering his phone. Rumours would indicate that the Lions have agreed a transfer fee with Harold Verster, though – the same bloke who placed a ridiculous valuation on the player of about 100 times his current salary in order to prevent him joining the Sharks.
We’ll bring you more on this as we get it. The Lions look set to announce the signing at a press conference this afternoon.Tweet
