Southern Kings Director of Rugby, Alan Solomons, had the following to say about allegations that the Southern Kings were spying on the Western Force practice session, “I want to make it clear that it is not our policy to spy on our opposition,”

Solomons said the Southern Kings had received a request from the Western Force management team requesting a change in venue, and were doing everything in their power to accommodate them.

They’ve asked the Vodacom Rugby squad to move their training session earlier on Thursday, and will be making their own training fields at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium available to them.

Solomons said the Kings would also be making provision from a security perspective, to ensure that the Western Force training sessions were kept private.

“We would also like to remind the general public that these training sessions are in fact closed sessions, and, while we understand that there is a lot of excitement at having international super rugby teams here for the first time, we would like to encourage the public to respect the Western Force’s privacy at this time,” he said.


  • Spying is never policy. That’s why they call it spying!

  • Why would anyone want to spy on the Force?? They are one of the teams that won’t completely embarrass the Kings.

  • @lostfish (Comment 5) : Exactly, so the Kings might benefit from spying on them. They’d still have no chance spying on the other teams.

  • The Force does not have anything to be worried about, in fact even if they join the Force in training they still won’t beat them on Saterday.
