The newly-appointed Super Rugby franchise the Southern Kings had a day for the local media to meet and greet an extended squad for next year’s season on Saturday.

New signings Andries Strauss, Waylon Murray, Demetri Catrakilis and Hadleigh Parkes, said that it’s an unique opportunity of doing something special at the Kings.

The Kings are also still in negotiations with Daniel Adongo.

  • Decent squad, a bit concerned about young Sergeal Petersen, hope it doesn’t come to a point where he has to play in Super Rugby this year already

  • I see Ronnie Cook is also back, he was a pretty decent centre as I recall.

  • @Argex (Comment 16) :

    I only see 3

    Maku
    Luke
    Murray
    Sykes was selected for a game but never took the field
    Andries Strauss only played against the Baabaas (from what I remember) so I don’t think he has a cap either.
