The Lions painted the town red

On Wednesday morning the Lions rugby team arrived in Secunda with a full schedule ahead of them; strategic sessions, team meetings, team building, practice and Aquazone was definitely a highlight for them. On Thursday, 28 November, the Lions rugby team were at the Makoro to enjoy an evening with their fans. From 17:00 to 18:00 young and old came together to have their shirts and rugby balls signed by the team. At 18:00 the coals were already red hot and the meat was waiting patiently to be braaied while everyone was still enjoying a drink and a chat with their favourite players. When the braais were ready The Bulletin team jumped in to help braai. Unfortunately, or fortunately, I do not know anything about braaing and soon commandeered some of the Lions to help. Before I knew it almost all the braais were taken over by the players and the meat was ready! Even when standing and socialising at the braai, the players gracefully signed shirts and rugby balls, spoke to fans and enjoyed taking photos with them.
During the course of the evening a rugby shirt was auctioned off. Michael Lindeque went home with the jersey. All in all, the evening was an amazing experience for all! We are looking forward to next year February when the team will be visiting Secunda again but this time with Radio Raps. Thank you to Johan Roslee for from Lake Umuzi for hosting the Lions during their recent visit. – Ané Prinsloo
