Jono Lance


In 2018, Jono Lance returns to where it all began for the 27-year-old flyhalf with more than 50 Super Rugby Caps of experience to his name; the Queensland Reds.

In his seven years as a professional Rugby player, Lance has earned caps for the Reds, Waratahs and Western Force but has always recognised Ballymore as home.

Back in 2011, Lance started at fullback against the Crusaders as the Reds claimed their first ever Super Rugby title in front of a full house at Suncorp. At the Waratahs, Lance won his second Super Rugby title in 2014 while his time in the West saw him also collect the 2016 National Rugby Championship.

This success has allowed Jono to see what creates a winning culture and what different methods of coaching and strategy in a business sense, as well as on a footy field, can create a winning environment.

Having just completed a short stint with the Worcester Warriors in the English Premiership, Lance returns to Ballymore as one of the most experienced members of the Reds’ backline.
