The Lions Rugby Company (Pty) Ltd. would like to announce the signing of Nicholas Groom from Northampton Saints.  

Due to injury and depth Groom will join the Company from 31 March 2018 until 31 October 2019. 

The Lions would like to welcome Groom and his family to Johannesburg.  

“My time in England with the Saints has been hugely satisfying on many levels. I’ve learned so much and I’m a better player and person for it. The opportunity to return to South Africa has come a lot sooner than expected but it’s one that I am really excited for. I’ll be joining a great team with high ambitions and I am looking forward to getting started,” Groom said.  

Thank you to Le Cap Sports and Northampton Saints for supporting Groom in his move and future endeavours.
