Lions sign Zebre lock Ferreira for Super Rugby

Johannesburg based Super Rugby franchise the Lions have announced that they have re-signed two current Super Rugby players and signed a new player.

The GLRU have secured the services of lock Andries Ferreira who has signed a two-year contract.

Ferreira recently returned from a stint in Italy at Pro12 side Zebre but also has previous Super Rugby and Currie Cup experience with the Cheetahs.

Ferreira will join the GLRU with immediate effect and will look to bolster the lock stock at the Union and provide added physicality in the tight five.

The GLRU can also confirm that two up-and-coming players, who have worked their way through the GLRU junior ranks and who made their Super Rugby debuts last weekend, have extended their contracts.

Centre Harold Vorster and lock JP du Preez have both signed on until the end of the 2016 season.

Both players have represented the Golden Lions at U19, U21 and Cup level before. Vorster also excelled in the 2014 Currie Cup tournament.
