“I am very pleased with the signing of Faf and Corne, as they have really become a part of the Lions family and have played important roles in our Super Rugby journey in recent years,” said Ackermann.

“They have already made a big contribution to the Lions and will hopefully enjoy it further here and continue to make a difference.

“Additionally, I am proud of Faf for his call up to the Springbok training squad. It is wonderful to see how he used his opportunity at the Lions to propel himself to the next level. I look forward to welcoming both him and Corne back into our structures next season.”
