Lions in, Spears out

The Spears will not play in next year’s Vodacom Super 14 after they made an out of court settlement with Saru.

According to a Saru press release, the Spears have abandoned the judgment by Judge Davis handed down on 4 August 2006.

Saru vice president Koos Basson said the effect of the settlement is that the Spears will not participate in the Super 14.

“SA Rugby has already commenced implementing measures to help the Eastern Cape region to sustain and strengthen the development of rugby in the region,” he said.
