Lions duo likely to remain

The Stormers are set to retain the services of Elton Jantjies and Jaco Taute on a permanent basis.

According to a report in Die Burger, the Stormers will offer both players contracts, once the contract negotiation period begins, which is 1 July.

Jantjies has struggled to make an impact at the Stormers, but has slowly started playing better as the season progressed. He is expected to continue in the flyhalf spot, with Peter Grant still struggling to regain fitness.

Taute on the other hand, has had a horrid time, first picking up a groin injury which ruled him out for a month, and then ruling himself out for a year with a knee injury.

With the Lions still having to secure their spot in Super Rugby next year, and another promotion/relegation battle on the horizon after the 2014 Super Rugby season, both players would in all likelihood like to secure contracts where their careers are not on the line. It is for this reason that I would not be surprised if both players stayed with the franchise in the Cape, or even moving abroad, rather than signing on with the Lions.
