Spencer to coach Lions – for the time being

Kiwi flyhalf Carlos Spencer has apparently been appointed as interim head coach after the Lions suspended countryman John Mitchell last week.

The Lions return to Super Rugby this weekend with a tough local derby against the Stormers at Newlands. Having come off an unexpected win against the Sharks in their last outing and with the Cape side still unsettled due to injury, one could have been forgiven for thinking that the Lions may have been in with just the narrowest chance of causing an upset.

The “player power”, though, that drove a bunch of unnamed senior players to hand over a list of grievances against the coach, sees all that disrupted as Mitchell will be forced to watch the last three games from the sidelines. It’s not the first time that Mitchell has been in hot water for speaking his mind too freely and calling a steaming pile of cr*p exactly that, but one wonders exactly what the Lions players expect their coach to say, given the load of dross they’ve dished up for large portions of this year’s campaign.

Forwards coach Johan Ackerman will support Spencer as assistant coach.
