    Kings' Luke Watson 'dilemma'

    2013-04-16 07:50
    Cape Town - The Kings coaches face a bit of a dilemma about who to drop now that captain Luke Watson is fit again.

    Watson played a full 80 minutes for Eastern Province in their 52-10 Vodacom Cup victory over SWD at the weekend. It was his first game back since sustaining a throat injury in the Kings' Super Rugby opener against the Force on February 23.

    "The plan was to get about 50 minutes of game time but I ended up playing the whole game," Watson said on Die Burger's website.

    The four loose forwards who did duty in Watson's absence - Wimpie van der Walt, Cornell du Preez, Vleis Engelbrecht and Devin Oosthuizen - all performed remarkably well and it will be tough for the Kings coaching staff to leave any player out.

    "We'll have to see if Solly and his team (Alan Solomons - director of rugby) decide to pick me," said Watson. "I coped well (against SWD) but we all know the tempo is much quicker in Super Rugby."

    It's possible that Watson could first play off the bench, which could see Oosthuizen move down to the Vodacom Cup team.

    The Kings host the Bulls at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Saturday (19:10 kick-off).
