JP Nel, a former Super Rugby winner with the Bulls, could be brought into the Lions squad.
Nel recently completed a stint in Japanese club rugby and is currently not contracted to any team. Beeld reports that the Lions have already contacted him about the possibility of joining the Johannesburg franchise on a short-term contract.
John Mitchell’s charges have been hit hard by injuries this season, especially in the backline. Centre Doppies la Grange was recently ruled out for three months and a number of other key players are unavailable.
