I'm sorry to say this, but did I miss the part where the EP Kings are the next best thing to sliced bread that hit Super Rugby? Why should they get any special preference or treatment...? They have been spoon fed and their entry has been handed to them on a silver platter. They didn't work for it. For a team that said they would field more players of color and more so the players from that region, there is very little of both in that team. No they should enter with players they have already. They already tried to persuade SARU to keep them in the Super 15 for 2 consecutive seasons, even if they finish at the bottom, which is unfair. They can't even get into the ABSA currie cup, what makes them think they will survive in the Super rugby league? The Lions had a bad season no doubt, but they have much more fight in them to do even better this season. The EP Kings caused much more damage then what they worth, and SARU made super bad decisions that will reflect on the politics that is in rugby in SA. Incompetent. The Kings must learn to fight for what they want and earn their place amongst the best. If they lose, they should get out of the S15 and come back when they are better prepared and when they have actually sticked to their end of the deal... I.e field more EP players and people of color like you promised! #bunchofcrooks
Stop spoon-feeding Kings!
