Will the Queens / Kings win a game in Super rugby?
February 05, 2013, 15:22:56

 Every year I look forward to Super Rugby kicking off and try to watch all of the SA teams in action. The Stormers is my team, but I love watching the Sharks and Cheetahs and event he bulls when they play against opposition teams. But now that the kings are playing this year, this is one team that I'm not quite sure that I want to watch. Looking at their squad, they have some notable names that if all fit may get a win or two. Players that stand out for me are. Bandiso Maku, Luke Watson, Steven Sykes, Adongo, Katrikillis, Strauss, Murrey, Ronnei Cooke, Micael Killian

Murray, Watson and Strauss stand out for you? Why?

I don;t think they will win any games they play in.   The players they got from other SA franchises were also on their b-list - only siuitable for bench selection at most - and on the point of being dropped from theoir previous franchises.   Sykes is one such example.

I do not think it will be worth watching them play - it is even likely that theyw ill lose the warm-up game against the Lions this coming weekend.

@kingcorn,

yes i do, they will IMO win their round 2 clash with the western force.

force are the comps 2nd worst team on paper and the epkings will be facing them in their first match up and in their own back yard,

from ur list of players there are three names in particular that stand out for me and who will be huge for the frachise this season, demitri catrakilis, daniel adongo and SA greatest rugby player ever luke watson.
nearly all here saw how well ctrakilis played in the CC, but what a lot of people disnt see was how strong daniel adongo is. i was inspecting a worksite today and i saw a kwi guy wearing a blues jersey. we got tot talking about rugby and our conversation led to adongo, where he was saying that back in NZ, adongo was one of the most talked about players in the comp, his nickname the terminator was given to him becaue he just dosent stop destroying his oppositions.
luke watson, well tina turner said it the best, ur simply the best, better then all the SA rest,  LMAO, -_o

They have a few useful players but I doubt they will win a game

Not only will they lose every game, they'll be humiliated in every game and even crap teams like the Force will stick at least 30 past them.

 

Let's hope this is a once-off embarrssment for SA rugby and after next year we can go back to the Lions and have a promotion/relegation system in place.
