Cheeky Watson words to the public and SARU was that he wants to develop LOCAL talent in PE, where is that promise? They are buying players from differant unions and 5 players from overseas. This is really pathetic, because they come away with murder, that got their ticket because of the developing of players in PE. They play superrugby but they can't even get into currie cup premier div, I don't understand that. The Lions was and will always be part of a power house. If SARU approve the kings by playing 5 overseas players then there is no hope for SA rugby and then we know where everyone stands with SARU. Ask yourself this question, why are all the players leaving SA to go play overseas, yes money plays a factor but they know and can see that SA rugby is more about politics and money than the love of the game. SA is going to loose all the big names in rugby and whgere we going to end up? This is the beginning of the end if this are going on like its going. The Kings WILL LOOSE every match this year and then I want to know what they going to say. The captain of the Kings said that he wil puke over the springbok jersey, peopled booooded him in the stands, and now SARU gives them a chance in super rugby? It just shows you what that legendary emblim means to SARU. I'm tired of politics and money that's destroying the beautiful game of rugby. Hope the Crusaders takes the cup.
