Squad (As at 11 June 2021)

The rugby landscape for the Lions changed during 2020, when Covid-19 brought Super Rugby to a halt after just 6 matches. In 2021 we are set to play in European competitions, but the season started with four friendlies against South African competition, and then the Rainbow cup, also against the three other SA teams
