    Ackermann commits to Lions, out of Bok frame

    2016-03-28 13:05

    Cape Town - Lions coach Johan Ackermann has reportedly extended his contract with the Johannesburg-based franchise.

    According to the Rapport newspaper, Ackermann put pen to paper last Thursday, with an official announcement to be made this coming Tuesday.

    More clarity will then be given regarding the length of his new contract.

    Ackermann's current contract expires after this year's Currie Cup, and he has been linked to clubs in Japan and Europe. 

    The Lions had a bye in Super Rugby this past weekend and will face the Crusaders in Johannesburg this Friday (19:00 kick-off).

    In committing to the Lions, Ackermann falls out of contention for the Springbok coaching job which is expected to be confirmed on Friday.
