Let’s forget for just a second about how the Kings, under the directions of chaps like Cheeky Watson, Mark Keohane and their cronies managed to wriggle their way into the Super Rugby at great loss to the Lions Rugby Franchise.
Let;s forget for a second about the conspiracy theories and real reasons behind the drive by these chaps to get the Port Elizabeth Stadium into the Super Rugby fold.
Let’s forget for a second that the Kings abused the system and portrayed themselves as an entity with a noble cause to promote Transformation,while they have done nothing to justify those claims, in fact, they have proven the opposite by allowing more “foreign” players in their squad than allowed, and that is not counting those from African countries who got place in the side ahead of other, more deserving South African, black citizens in that very Union.
Let’s forget Luke Watson’s comments about Dutchman and the Springbok jersey making him nauseous….
The Kings are here to stay.
Sorry to the Lions, but it seems it will take a very long time for them to return to Super Rugby. Left to play in sub standard, make shift competitions, and with their players on loan to other unions doing nothing to make one dismiss the “group think” theory that seemingly plagued the Lions for all these years, there just doesn’t seem any way that the Lions will beat the Kings, or for that matter,
