Lions lose Franco (again)

As if it wasn’t bad enough losing their only current Springbok to injury, the Lions now have to face up to the reality that big Franco van der Merwe won’t pull on their colours again.

The single-capper Bok has signed a deal with Irish province Ulster, which will see him play out of Ravenhill in Belfast for the next two years. Van der Merwe, who is currently undergoing rehabilitation after ankle surgery, will join up with Ruan Pienaar and company after the Super Rugby season, ironically replacing another South African, former Shark Johann Muller, on their roster.

“I spoke with Johann Muller and Ruan Pienaar about Ulster and they had only good things to say. That made the decision really easy for me,” said van der Merwe of the move.
