The Democratic Alliance welcomes the announcement today by SA Rugby that the Eastern Province Kings will participate in next season’s Super 15 franchise.
This is very good news for rugby in the Eastern Cape. This will boost tourism in the province when games are played here, which will have a spin-off of much needed job creation.
Our young promising rugby players won’t be lost to this province as has happened in the past. The EP Kings have our support and we wish them well in their preparations for the tournament.
