Southern Kings Coach, Deon Davids chats to Chumani Bambani on 10 January 2017 ahead of the start of the Super Rugby Season.
“We were fortunate this year to start a bit earlier, unfortunately a bit later with the contracts but still ahead of where we were last year in preparation,” said Davids.
Davids is happy with the teams higher level of fitness having benefited from some intense pre-season coaching that has laid the foundation to hopefully overcome the situation with last season’s players running out of steam in the last 20 minutes of each game.
“We were lucky to put together a reasonable squad with talented players and lots of exciting youngsters coming up. I think that we have a good balance. Overall I am quite happy as last year this time we didn’t have a squad,” said Davids.
Davids also said that in the best circumstances it would have been nice to have some continuity from last season.
