If it wasn’t for bad luck, EP Kings captain Luke Watson would have no luck whatsoever.

News coming out of the Bay this morning is that Watson sustained a concussion against the Blue Bulls last weekend, meaning a mandatory four week period on the sidelines. Given that the new boys’ inspirational leader has only just returned form a bout of flu, after missing around a year of rugby wit a foot injury, at least the Kings can say that they are used to having to make do without him.

The Kings, whose Currie Cup campaign has got off to a poor start (with no wins their first three outings) face more of the same this weekend, with the wounded Lions heading down to the NMB Stadium looking for a big result, after a tame loss against Western Province at the weekend.

Watson will now, it seems, only return to action a fortnight or so before the play-offs, which the Kings look rather unlikely to contest at this stage of proceedings.


  • Wow poor Luke seems to have the worst luck over the last two years.

  • Hard luck to Watson but surely its no big issue for the Kings…i mean there are thousands of quality players in the Eastern Cape to pick from…is there not a queue of players outside the stadium?? Or am i confused…

  • Not sure its a loss really – his replacement played much better last week.
