Lions sign Erasmus

The Lions Rugby Company has signed Paarl Boys High Director of coaching Sean Erasmus to join their coaching ranks from 1 November 2018.

Erasmus, who is well-known in schools rugby circles, will come into the Lions junior coaching ranks and is set to get a chance to coach at age-group level at the Lions next season.

“Sean will bolster the ranks of our coaches which already consist of some sterling names like Mziwakhe Nkosi, Bafana Nhleko, Wessel Roux and Herkie Kruger,” Straeuli confirmed.

SA Rugby just announced that Nhleko will act as assistant coach for the SA Under 20 side this year, following hot on the heels of the Emirates Lions’ Vodacom Super Rugby defence coach Joey Mongalo, who was part of the SA Under 20 coaching staff in 2016.

The Lions’ juniors have dominated the league in recent years with the Under 19’s successfully defending their national title in 2017 after winning it in 2016 and the Under 21 side winning the competition in 2016 and reaching the semifinal last year.

It is unclear which side Erasmus will coach next season.
