Lions

Johannesburg LionsFounded in 1996, the Lions have made the Super Rugby finals just twice in their history, in the 2000 and 2001 seasons. The Lions have often been clouded by an uncertain future due to their lowly finishes, and were relegated from the Super Rugby competition for the 2013 season after finishing last in 2012.

After defeating the Southern Kings (who replaced them for the 2013 season) in a two-legged playoff, the Lions confirmed their return to Super Rugby in 2014. The side finished 12th in the 2014 competition and showed encouraging form that will have them believing in bigger and better things for the years 2015 onward.

The Lions play out of the iconic Ellis Park, in Johannesburg.
