  • Man they must be glad they had to add the players’ names to that press release or else the team name would have made up almost half of the release.

    Do they pay extra on match day because of the extra electricity used to display their team name?

  • KSA, maybe they couldn’t think of anything nice to say, so they rather didn’t say anything 😉

  • Auto and General paid R30m for the naming rights…hopefully we will use the money wisely before the start of the 2009 S14 season.

  • yeah 30mil will buy quite a few decent players and then you still have the Xerox Lions as well.

    How much did they pay?

  • Xerox is the sponsor for the Currie Cup team, but I don’t know how much they paid.

  • Auto and General repudiates your insurances claims and the Lions repudiate winning…..

  • lions have lost a few to many, need to get a break and win the close one’s, hard to break it now, am afraid cant see them getting off the bottom.
