    Kings will hit back - Solomons

    2013-07-02 09:12
    Cape Town - Kings director of rugby Alan Solomons insists his side can pick themselves up after a poor showing against the Bulls.

    The men from Port Elizabeth were disappointing in a 48-18 loss at Loftus Versfeld last Saturday, and according to the SowetanLIVE website, Solomons and head coach Matt Sexton put the team through a rigorous training routine on Monday.

    Solomons is adamant things the players will be able to pick themselves up after the mauling in Pretoria.

    "They can and they will," he said.

    "This is our last game at home and the guys will want to finish in style. We will be very motivated for the game," Solomons said.

    "They did not play well at the weekend and it was a poor performance and they knew it. We had our usual flush-out today. We have to get the Bulls game out of the way and do a full review with one-on-ones with the players and put the game to bed properly."

    The Kings will name their team to face the Stormers on Tuesday and have no serious injury problems to consider.

    Kick-off at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium is at 17:05 on Saturday.
