Myeni spent his early years plying his trade at Bidvest
Wits, where the pressure and expectation wasn't quite what it is at Pirates.
The transition was always going to be a delicate one but Myeni thinks that he
has finallly found his feet at the Bucaneers.
Myeni played in 28 Premiership matches for the club last
season and has already been given 20 starts this term.
"I think I'm getting there in terms of living up to
expectations," said Myeni, after his club's 2-1 against Mpumalanga Black
Aces on Wednesday.
"When you come from a 'smaller team' you are constantly
judged, but I just have to just keep my head down, work with the team and keep
doing what I'm doing," added Myeni, who has been recognised as one of the
better players in the team during the 2015 section of the campaign.
Myeni, like many in the Pirates squad, has credited coach
Eric Tinkler with sparking the team's revival this year. Myeni feels that
under the Tinkler regime the team has been more motivated than ever, which has
helped with his personal performance.
"The technical team has done well to keep the spirits
high, even among the guys not playing, so credit to them for that," added
"We play every game like it's a final, so we leave
everything on the field. When it's done we move on to the next."
