    WATCH: Skosan pays tribute to Ackermann

    2017-08-07 14:13

    Johannesburg - Lions wing Courtnall Skosan believes joining the franchise in 2014 is what made him a Springbok. 

    The 26-year-old has been central to the side's revolution under coach Johan Ackermann over the past four seasons, and he was rewarded for his fine form in June when he played all three Tests against France. 

    Now, in an emotional video post, Skosan has paid tribute to outgoing coach Ackermann, who is on his way to join English club Gloucester this week. 

    "We just want to say thank you for everything he's done for us. He's amazing, not just as a coach but as a person," Skosan said. 

    "He's all about building relationships and that family vibe. It's really been helping us and you can see it out on the field as well."

    Ackermann joined the Lions in 2013 when they were relegated from Super Rugby. 

    In the last four seasons of the tournament he has turned them into one of the best sides, and he leaves with two runners-up medals from 2016 and 2017.
