This talented group of internationally-experienced coaches will be joined in the Lions management team by Craig White, who will be responsible for the physical conditioning of the players, Doctor James Robson, leading the medical team, Rhys Long, who will oversee performance analysis, and Greg Thomas, who will head the media team.
Tour manager Gerald Davies said: "Today is an important milestone in our preparation. The personnel announced today have the proven skill sets to ensure that the Lions squad is well prepared for the tour to South Africa next year.
"The cosmopolitan make-up of the management team reflects the modern nature of rugby and they, like me, are well aware of the challenges that await us."
"We therefore have to create a positive environment and appoint the right personnel to help devise the right strategies to take on the Springboks at home.
"I am delighted with today's appointments and confident that we can come together quickly as preparation time is always short.
"Working with coaches and personnel that I know well and who have successful track records and experience ensures that we will get the best out of the players and provide the greatest chance of winning the Test series."
