Lions Vodacom Cup net cast wide

The Golden Lions have cast their net wide for the four-team Vodacom Cup trials to be held at Raiders Rugby Club on Wednesday afternoon (5pm).

New Vodacom Cup coach Hugo van As will be able to select from last year’s Lions side that won the national title in the provincial amateur league.

The 2007 Lions Sub-Union side, as well as the bulk of last year’s Vodacom Cup squad, have also been invited to the trials as teams, while the remainder of the three sides’ players as well as fringe players from the clubs will also get a chance to show their worth in a fourth trial side.

Van As will be assisted as fowards coach by former Springbok flanker Ian Macdonald, while former Lions back Jaco Booysen is the Vodacom Cup backline coach
