Lions get one back

The Lions have signed lock/loose-forward Trevor Hall from french club Biarritz Olympique. The player was looking for a year’s extension on his contract which Biarritz did not give and the 31-year old subsequently signed a 3-year contract with the Lions.

Hall returns to the Lions where he last played for the Lions (and the Cats) in 2006 before leaving for the french club.

Is this a good deal for the Lions or is it just another desperate signing? I guess time will tell.

  • We let Jaco Pretorius go 2 years ago because we didn’t want to give him a 3-year contract….this does not make sense at all…

  • @Greg (Comment 5) :
    Keil doesnt have a contract with the Sharks. Only gets paid match fees. I must say, that this arrangement by the Sharks management is earning points in my book. But to contract a player who is 31, for three years, after his club didnt want him anymore, is seriously a clutching at straws. Likewise, 1 step forward, 3 steps back.

  • This is totally pathetic, but this is proof that Manie has lost the plot, Dick is telling them what to do, and they will end up in the same situation as when Loffie was there. They have given him total control, and that is the biggest mistake they can ever make. But I believe they are trying to convince the Lions websites to be positive. Manie you are a disgrace.

  • Lions have nothing to be positive about. The sooner they stop deluuding themselves and take an honest look at the situation, the sooner they can start to fix it

  • @chaz (Comment 32) : @robdylan (Comment 26) : at least this guy is not andy goode! Andy Goode = the [email protected] signing of an overseas player by a south african franchise, even naqelevuki doesn’t come close because the 2nd [email protected] signing of a foreign player still is by the sharks, can anyone say Epi Taione?

  • @Megatron (Comment 33) : 😀 😆 Well you have the two worst right on, but I would have to reverse the order I’m afraid, Epi Taione was by far the worst signing, much worse than Goode.

  • @Dancing Bear (Comment 34) : With Goode you had a smattering of positives amongst a sea of negatives. With Epi you just had one negative after another, contributed absolutely nothing to the Sharks, and hurt their ambitions that season in many ways. Goode you can almost justify. 😉

  • @Megatron (Comment 33) :

    Carlos Spencer must be a close second.

    1) Epi Taione
    2) Spencer
    3) Goode (At least the Sharks won a few Games with the help of Goode.
