  • So even the Kings beat the Landers, with a bonus point try.

    Well done Kings…yet another blemish for the Sharks to consider.

  • Got a feeling Sharks going to be the only side to lose against bottom super rugby side. Really got a feeling of de ja vu………. o no wait that also happened last year. Don’t worry guys everything’s fine at the Sharks, nothing’s wrong there only some injuries.

  • @Mutley (Comment 5) : you the only Lion on here who gives Kings their dues when they deserve it, very honourable trait of any man sir

  • Congrats Kings. I only watched about 20 minutes of the first half when my livestream conked but in that time they play well and I can only assume from the final score that they continued on that vein.

    This leaves SARU (and the Lions) with a problem. Can SARU really afford to risk the Kings in knockout games at the end of the season?

  • @Baylion (Comment 140) : awesome to have your guys’ support, at the end of it all we have nothing against the Lions. We just wanted our chance and it’s a real pity we had to come in at your expense

  • @Ludz (Comment 141) : Ludz, tbh the result was a smile wiper. I had the Highlanders up for a comfortable win and as a Lions supporter would prefer the Kings not to be full of confidence come knock outs time :), it’s going to be tough enough.

  • @Ludz (Comment 141) : some support this is 😀

    @ FireTheLooser (Comment 13) : I’ve been
    known to be wrong sometimes
    The Highlanders has always been a better team
    than their results show. Indiscipline and poor
    execution has dogged them (as well as the Ma’a
    Nonu bogie) but they have started to gel (and
    Nonu is not on tour). The Kings is a poor side
    with a poor defence that has been playing on
    adrenaline and their only hope is that the
    Highlanders, with their high octane rugby, will
    give them some turnover ball to score a few
    tries against the run of play to achieve another
    “respectable loss”.

  • @Megatron (Comment 143) : So I have to eat my words 🙂

    I’ve lost a lot of SB points this year hoping the Clan’s talent will come through and start playing rugby but in vain.

    Well done to the Kings.
