JOHANNESBURG – The Lions have managed to secure the services of head coach Swys de Bruin for at least another two Super Rugby campaigns.
This was announced by the Lions on Tuesday, ensuring De Bruin will be in charge during the 2020 and 2021 competitions.
He said he had accepted a contract extension because he had “unfinished business” with the Lions.
“I want to finish what I started here. With a young team and the right experienced guys, I believe we can achieve that,” said the man who took over from Johan Ackermann at the beginning of 2018.
“The future looks bright. I had opportunities to go elsewhere – this is a big world – but after a lot of consideration, I decided with my family that it is the right thing to stay.
