Cape Town - The EP Kings will use the 2015 Currie Cup as a platform to prepare for their return to Super Rugby next year.

Having unveiled Bret Janse van Rensburg this week as their Currie Cup coach for the upcoming campaign, the Kings are currently still looking for a coach for next year's Super Rugby side. 

"We are still in that process," Kings CEO Charl Crous told Sport24.

"There are various candidates that we are looking at. In an ideal world we would like to have it wrapped up by the end of the month, but a lot still needs to happen."

While desperate for the Kings to make an impression on their return to Super Rugby, Crous is also aware that a good performance in the Currie Cup would go a long way towards convincing the supporters that they can make the step up. 

"I think it is important," he said. 

"We would like to show the fans that we are ready to compete at the highest level.

"We are also in a position when a large number of our players in this year's Currie Cup squad will be part of the Super Rugby side, so we'd like to start moving forward positively."
