they have been on top form in training.
"Well, I think I’ve been here a couple of days and have seen some great talent in this
country and hopefully we will be able to develop that, considering the short
space of time I have been here.

Ntshangase. These have obviously been in top form and have been playing well
for their clubs respectively and I’m looking forward to seeing what they have
to offer come Sunday."
