Break not a concern for Lions centre

Date published: June 1 2016

Lions inside centre Rohan Janse van Rensburg feels the June international window will not hinder the team's superb form.

The men from Johannesburg went into the June break after claiming a deserved 56-20 victory over the Bulls and has proven to be one of the best sides in the competition. 

Janse van Rensburg is confident his team can overcome the absence of Lions head coach Johann Ackermann, who will be heading up the SA A side. They will also lose some of their best players, who are in the Springbok set-up.       

"During this break, it is important for everyone who is in and out of the Springbok squad to work even harder during the time apart," Janse van Rensburg told

"We each know what we have to do to ensure we can fire as a team when we all return for Super Rugby.

"We are going to work hard during the off-season to ensure that we are fit and ready to play at our best. We believe we can achieve more during this Super Rugby campaign… we just need to take things week by week."

Janse van Rensburg was in fine form against the Bulls. He scored tries, ran 112 metres, had a try assist, and is proud of the win. 

"It was an absolute honour to get that win. It was a massive team effort." he added.

"I’m really enjoying my Super Rugby experience this season. I’m focused on giving my best during every opportunity. I work hard on and off the field to ensure I’ll be ready for everything that comes my way.

"The loss to the Hurricanes (in Round 10) was a big wake-up call for us.

"Instead of letting that result affect us, we used it as motivation and the team has really responded well to that. We have played a great brand of rugby since then and we want to work hard to ensure we keep it up."
