  • @KingCheetah (Comment 1) : you don’t think Cornell du Preez counts?

    Ok, ok… the team list is out of order. But he is there.

    Whoever is doing releases on behalf of the Kings needs to learn how to count in reverse order.

  • I’m going against the grain here; I really hope the Kings do well.

    the Lions had their turn, several turns actually, and they were consistently pooh.

    Glad to see Watson back playing SuperRugby. Personality aside, too good a player to be wasted.
    And I think being the captain in his home province will do him good.
    I expect big things of Mr. Watson this year.

  • This game will be fun to watch, whichever way it goes.

    I’m actually looking forward to it…more so than I would have looked forward to a Lions vs. Force game. ;-)
