The Golden Lions Rugby Union confirmed this morning that John Mitchell, head coach of the MTN Lions team, has been suspended to provide the Union with the opportunity to investigate certain allegations.

Lions President, Kevin de Klerk said, “we are fortunate to be in a position where we have two experienced assistant coaches (Johan Ackermann and Carlos Spencer) who are able to step in during this period”.

Where necessary, and for the time being, Johan Ackermann (MTN Lions Forward Coach), in conjunction with the management team, will make the necessary team related and technical decisions.
