The Golden Lions Rugby Union has announced that their International team will in future be known as the LIONS.
The public were asked to vote for a new logo for the international team, and last week the logo was presented to the Union.
After in-depth marketing research carried out in June 2006, it was decided to move away from the Cats brand, and become the Lions, while all the representative sides, from Currie Cup right down to the U/13 team will retain their identity as Golden Lions.
With a total international identity change, new coach ‘ Eugene ‘Loffie’ Eloff and his management team, and the foundation laid during the Currie
Cup where the Golden Lions achieved eight consecutive wins, the Lions will start preparing soon for their 2007 international campaign.
The outcome of the legal dispute with the Spears and SARU over whether or not the Lions will appear in the 2007 Super 14 will be known on the 23rd of November 2006.
