Rapport has an article that says Kanko is on his way to the Lions to bolster the loosies stock and also that they managed to keep Jacques "Polisieman" van Rooyen from the Cape, where he was offered R400k per year. Not to shabby for an oke who was still playing club rugby couple of years ago.
Kanko? is he still playing?

He was offered R400k more per year

....Rudolf Straeuli, uitvoerende hoof van die Leeus, het die laaste tyd daarin geslaag om te verhinder dat die stut Jacques van Rooyen ’n aanloklike aanbod uit die Kaap aanvaar.

Hy het nee gesê vir die sowat R400 000 per jaar meer wat hy in die Kaap sou verdien om ’n Leeu te bly.

Lions have done well to retain their personnel.

Like to a list of who's lost whom for the next season.

It is a pity about Akker, but then again, besides Marx the Lions still have Robbie Coetzee. So gametime is limited anyway.

With regards to the weekend's semi, I am very nervous. The last 2 weekends is also not the perfect confidence boost, but again, rather that then having runaway wins against poor opposition and being over-confident.

Come boytjies, give Ackermann the perfect send-off!!!
