On completion of more than ten years of hard work and dedication the Lions Rugby Company (Pty) Ltd. would like to bid farewell to JP Ferreira, defence and assistant coach of the Lions.
“JP has been part of the Lions Rugby revival and I would like to thank him for his hard work and passion” said Rudolf Straeuli, CEO of the Lions Rugby Company (Pty) Ltd.
“It is really hard to say goodbye to this amazing Lions family. I have been fortunate and blessed to have been with the Lions for ten years and have been part of ten Currie Cup and Super Rugby Competitions. There have been extreme highs and lows in these ten years of service, but nothing that I would ever regret. It has been an amazing time,” said Ferreira.
“I feel that it is now time for me to improve, grow and experience a new culture, team, environment and competitions. I want to thank every single coach, player and support staff that invested in my life at the Lions Rugby Company in these ten years. I cannot thank you enough.
“I’m really excited and am looking forward to this next challenge and chapter in my and my family’s lives.”
Ferreira will further his career at Munster Rugby from 1 January 2018.
Lions Rugby wishes JP and his family all the very best in his future endeavours.
