Kempson announced Jeremy Ward, who captained the U19 team last year, would be captaining the side, with the versatile Sintu Manjezi as vice-captain of the team.

“It’s a nicely balanced side, especially having a few players on loan from the Southern Kings, such as Louis Albertse, Phillip du Preez, Tazz Fuzani and JP Jonck bringing a bit of experience, ” Kempson said.

“It is certainly the tallest pack that I have ever coached since being in the Eastern Cape.”

Kempson said he was confident that the off field issues would not effect the players performance in the competition.

All these players want to play rugby, they want the opportunity to perform and to play rugby at a professional level,” he said.

Kempson said he was expecting a very physical game against SWD, as was always the case in local derbies but did not think the team would be intimidated .

We all know what they’re going to bring and we’re ready for it,” he said.
