Kings wing seeks S15 stint

    Cape Town - Eastern Province Kings wing Sergeal Petersen is eager to join a South African Super Rugby franchise on loan next season.

    The 19-year-old speedster impressed for the Port Elizabeth franchise in Super Rugby earlier this year.

    However, with the Kings relegated from next year's competition, Petersen will be left playing Vodacom Cup rugby unless he can be added to one of the five other local squads.

    According to the EWN Sport website, Petersen has held discussions with three Super Rugby franchises with the aim of representing them in 2014. The three franchises are believed to be the Cheetahs, Stormers and Sharks.

    He is contracted to the Kings until 2015, but they will allow him to go on-loan for the Super Rugby campaign should he come to an agreement with one of the franchise teams.

    His agent, Wallis Roux, said they’re considering their options at the moment and would like to get involved with a franchise that really shows an interest in him.

    It was announced on Tuesday that Petersen will also play for Kaizer Chiefs' rugby team in next weekend’s Sevens Premier League in George.
