Cape Town - Western Province speedster Seabelo Senatla is raring to go against the Pumas at Newlands on Friday, but says he and his team-mates must get the timing of their execution right.

Speaking ahead of Friday afternoon's Currie Cup clash, Senatla said: "It is going to be an interesting battle, I think the Pumas have been playing well in the last few games.

"We have seen how they like keeping the ball alive and attacking from the back. So we will have to be careful with how and when we kick," Senatla said in the DHL WP Online Matchday Programme.

"We are working really hard on our kicking game as outside backs and while I think the execution is there I don't think the timing of the kicks is there, that is what is costing us turnover ball.

"We are working hard on it, we are seeing space but I think we are not executing it at the right times, which is putting us in trouble. We are seeing the opportunities and trying to make them count at the right times," Senatla says.
To see whether or not Senatla plans to play Sevens rugby again in the future, see the full interview in the DHL WP Matchday Programme.

Friday's match kicks off at 15:00.
