  • @JD (Comment 71) : for sure he combined well with the outside backs in open play which led to two tries, i think with Shane Gates they might just use him at 13

  • @pierre_mackie (Comment 72) : ja he can work at 13 but I think he’s better at 12. Great for the KIngs to have him as I think he will add a lot to the Kings back line.

  • Well done Kings, I wonder how they’ll fare against a stronger opposition though. Anyone got the low down on how the curry cup qualifiers are coming along? Who’s the current favorites and all, I’d suppose the Griquas would be the obvious favorites to make that 8th spot but are there any surprises?
