It seems as though either the Western Force or the EP Kings were reading Sharksworld this morning, as news has surfaced that the Western Force are looking to fill the three week break in the SupeRugby campaign with a match against the Kings.

If the report is to be believed, it seems the Force are actually looking to host a series of games against the Kings in this period. The Force, who return to SupeRugby action against the Brumbies, Blues and Crusaders, are brave to continue playing in what other teams will see as a much needed break.

Force coach Richard Graham is pretty sure that the break will not do the squad any harm, as he will give the players a week off, a few weeks in the club scene and than the expected games against the Kings.

We will have to wait and see if this materialises, but if it does, it is a good opportunity for the EP Kings to get more exposure a good quality game time.


  • Thanks Richard 😉 Seems they have been reading Sharksworld.

  • Nice training game against a team 3 levels below them for the Force.

    If it was the Rebels, I would give the Kings a chance..

    Force will put 80 past them with their reserves..

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 2) : Thanks. It seems to have created a lot of debate. It seems people think I’m in favour of the Kings, but I’m black and white all the way!

  • @Muzi (Comment 7) : Haha I just meant that some people thought I was heavily pro-Kings. On that issue as long as it benefits the Boks and doesn’t negatively impact on my Sharks then I’m fine with them playing. I’m just saying that there is no such thing as a free lunch. You always have to pay, and they will have to earn their seat at the table.

  • happy for the EP Kings…..its a great opportunity to measure their development against a non-RSA super rugby team.

  • Will mean the Kings play 6 Super Rugby teams this season and the will realistically see were they stand at the moment

  • This should be ineteresting. It won’t be seen as a warm up game as both teams will be well into their respectives seasons for the year. Now we will be able to see how the Kings can hold up against one fo the lesser Aus teams in the S15
