Doppies signs Italian deal

Lions centre Doppies la Grange – the other Porties boy in the news today – has apparently decided to turn his back on the Joburg strugglers to play for Treviso in the Italian league.

Doppies, whose parents christened him Gideon back in 1981 (to my knowledge, nobody ever calls him that) has battled his way through a succession of injuries and form dips to the point where he’s now considered one of the mainstays in the Lions backline; furthermore, he was named Lions vice captain for this year’s Super Rugby campaign.

That notwithstanding, though, the 30-year-old has opted to leave Joburg on 30 June to join Franco Smith’s side in Italy for the next two years. Speculation is rife that the ongoing uncertainty relating to both the Lions’ financial position, as well as the likelihood that they’ll even play Super Rugby next year, may have played a huge role in la Grange’s decision.
