The SARU General Council took a decision this morning that the last placed South African team in the 2012 SupeRugby competition will be relegated for the 2013 competition. Thereafter, a promotion-relegation match for participation in 2014 will take place.
This means that according to the SARU General Council decision the Lions are relegated from the 2013 SupeRugby competition.
Lions President, Kevin de Klerk, stated that: “We are extremely disappointed at this result. This is a very unfortunate decision which will result in a team taking part in a competition without needing to qualify on rugby merits. We will take time to consider this decision and then to plan our response that best protects our players, staff, stakeholders and supporters”.
A press conference will be held by the Golden Lions Rugby Union next Tuesday, 21 August 2012 regarding the above matter
