So, last season Ackers Jnr played 26 games in total completing 80 minutes on 14 occasions including 3 out of the first 4 games of the season.

He appeared to be given a break mid-season as he only played 1 game in the whole of January.

Given the SID we have this season hopefully the new players can be worked in a bit more gently as there were definitely times in the second half of the season when Ruan looked a bit jaded.

We'll see who the starting front row is..... but based on last yea,r when fit, the top line was Hohneck, Hanson and Balmain. I guess Dreyer will feed in during Oct/ Nov.

Val has been getting the nod from JA over Hohneck when he has been fit so I'd imagine VRR Hanson Balmain.

Well it's another season so we'll see . Last season Hohneck was the man even when Ruskin was fit. VVR was on the bench most of the time.

Mapoe and Jantjies have both committed themselves to the Lions for the 2019 Super Rugby season.

Neither coming our way then

Malcolm Marx on the market after the RWC?

Renewed his contract with the Lions but only for one year

Warren Whiteley, Malcolm Marx, Ross Cronje, Aphiwe Dyantyi, Cyle Brink and Marvin Orie have all re-signed [with the Lions].

However, the significant fact is that Whiteley and Marx have only signed on for one more year – until after the 2019 World Cup in Japan.
