The Lions Rugby Company would like to take the opportunity to thank all of their staff and players for understanding and embracing the difficult and very challenging times that was forced upon them by COVID-19.
It truly takes special people to make a place special and the Lions family will always remain true to what they stand for, even in trying times.
As one of the terms of the Industry Salary Plan (ISP) to deal with the repercussions of Covid-19, SA Rugby introduced a 21-day window allowing for players and staff to cancel their current contracts with immediate effect.
With that said, we would like to announce that we will part ways with the following people who have been an integral part of the Lions for some time:
- Malcolm Marx
- Ruan Vermaak
- Tyrone Green
- Shaun Reynolds
- Neil de Bruin
Rudolf Straeuli, Chief Executive Officer of the Lions Rugby Company, thanked them for their valuable contributions, some of them having formed part of the Lions since their school-going days.
“There is always a big sense of loss and sadness when we lose family members. We wish them well on their journey ahead and thank them for some very special times spent with the Lions,” Straeuli said.
The Lions Rugby Company and EPS (Pty) Ltd have appointed a COVID-19 task team that will ensure their premises are safe for staff to return to work once prohibited to do so.
