Lions re-appoint Bell

6:47 am on 21 December 2010

The Wellington Rugby Union has re-appointed Andre Bell as coach of the Lions.

Bell took up the role on a temporary basis in August following the departure of Jamie Joseph to the Highlanders.

The former Bay of Plenty coach led the team to the 2010 national provincial competition play-offs, before eventually missing out 57-41 in the semi-final in Christchurch to the eventual champions.

Bell says that top-four finish is where Wellington would like to get to as a starting point next season and their goal is to win the ITM Cup.
