Southern KingsThe Kings revealed that they will wear an all black strip when playing at home in this year’s Super Rugby competition.

Sport24

According to Die Burger’s website, the team will change to an all white strip for away matches.

They will wear their new jerseys for the first time when they open their Super Rugby campaign against the Force in Port Elizabeth on Saturday, February 23.

This change in jerseys sees a shift away from the traditional red and black hoops worn by Eastern Province.

In upcoming warm-up games against the Lions in Johannesburg (Saturday) and Griquas in Port Elizabeth (Wednesday), the team will, however, still sport its old colours.

The game at Ellis Park on Saturday has been dubbed by many as a ‘grudge’ match with the Kings facing the team they replaced in this year’s Southern Hemisphere showpiece.

But their director of rugby, Alan Solomons, has dismissed the talks.

“This game has nothing to do with who has the right to play Super Rugby. It’s a warm-up game for the Southern Kings as part of our preparations for our debut in Super Rugby against the Western Force, nothing more,” said Solomons.

    Miskien maak hul nou Micheal Jackson se song “Doesnt matter if you are black or white hul team song.

    Again a team stealing the colours of the Sharks. No brains atall to think up their own identity

  • 4

    net omdat jy soos die all blacks try lyk beteken dit nie jy gaan so speel nie

    @ smallies:
    En dieselfde gaan vir die Sharks. net omdat hulle hul truie van die Kiwis gesteel het beteken nie dat hulle soos die All Blacks sal speel nie.

    The KwaZulu-Natal Sharks is a South African rugby union team that participates in the annual Currie Cup tournament. The Sharks’ home stadium is Kings Park. They draw most of their players from the KwaZulu-Natal Province. The Sharks are the current representative team of the Natal Rugby Union, founded in 1890. The team was known simply as ‘The Banana Boys’ until the mid-1990s.

    Their Jerseys were black and white with the Wildebeest logo

    A least when they get record defeats and decide that Rugby is dead in the Eaastern Cape they won’t have to wear black arm bands!

  • 18

    The quota player is a doos…. and I’m not talking about the black player…

  • 19

    This is one game I am NOT going to miss !!!!!! Delicious

    Anyone watched Cheeky’s interview on news24 earlier this week? He is still wearing his orange Cheetah shirt, I noticed…..and he is still quoting from the Scriptures as if on a divine mission down in EP, eishhh!
    What a deadbeat this wannabee rugby missionary is; one has to feel for all those aspiring young black stars in the Border region who don’t even have tv to watch the matches while Cheeky and Son are lining there pockets from ‘black rugby development’ in the Eastern Cape.

    @ xkreniwp:
    Nou gaan my goeie vrind Superbul my weer aanvat oor my anti-Watson houding, watch! Sagte, vergewengesinde ou daai….maar nie ekke nie!
    Cheeky moet eers verklaar waar hy deesdae staan met Springbok-rugby, en of hy nog die Springbok-embleem en die groen en goud van die Bokke wil verban (soos wat hy in 2007 verklaar het), voor ek dit enigsins sal oorweeg.
    En voor almal my weer begin hap, gaan lees eers Peter de Villiers se boek (die gedeelte oor die Watsons).

    Hi Oom Piet. You still there between the Camel Jockeys?

    @ Scrumdown:
    Ja ou seun, steeds, so in en uit.
    Hoe hang dinge jou kant?

  • 25

    @ Pietman:
    Gaan maar net aan.

    Vrou en kinders wil net plaas toe (CAO) en KKNK!

    Hulle dink seker geld groei op my rug. Maar nou ja. Ek wonder wat sal hulle doen as ek besluit ons gaan modder Eiland toe trek. Vrou se suster sal my seker vrek maak. lol

  • 26

    @ Scrumdown:g!
    CAO is reg. Ek sien hulle soek n dorpsbestuurder daar, lekker joppie daai, lekker wereld, een van my gunstelingareas in SA. Ek het net goeie herinneringe van daai plek, ek en swaerie gaan juis Augustus weer vleisfees toe op CAN….

  • 27

    @ Pietman:
    Vrou reel nou vir ‘n paar mense om te gaan jag op suster se plaas Julie maand.

    Di’s nie my koppie tee nie, so ek sal maar by die huis bly en Voetbal maar kyk.

  • 28

    Well I don’t agree with this. Why does another team in our conference want to wear the same colours as the Sharks? So daft actually why not have their own identity with their OWN colours? Natal who became the Sharks has a ALWAYS worn Black and White. So Kings now want to wear the same colours? Pathetic really.

  • 29

    And their other jeresey is all white??????????????? Just like the Sharks?????? Crikey do they still think they part of the Sharks? Both the black and white jersey is what we have worn forever.

    Just wont be the same if I don’t at least make ONE typo……… Happy-Grin

    Howzit Piet,

    How you doing? Hope well. Are you back in Saudi?

  • 32

    No Sharks thread so will just put this up here.

    Good luck to my Sharks tonight. Hope their warm up game goes well.

    Sharky don’t forget a article on our Sharks game tonight, don’t think it is on tv.

    Cape is really beautiful. Having a great holiday just the traffic and wind is hectic down here. Still a great place for a holiday.

    Out of here now.

    Go Sharks! Just hope no injuries from these warm up games.

  • 33

    @ Pietman: Ek voel ‘n veer wie wat sê. Ek het dit vroeër die jaar iewers op een van die artikels gesê wat ek dink van die hele EP Kings storie, en ek sal dit weer sê, Ek ondersteun nie ‘n span wat deur middel van hul politieke konneksies toegang kry tot die Super Rugby nie. Cheeky het bietjie drade gaan trek by die ANC, so dink twee keer voordat jy sy hand skud.

    Hy en sy klein seuntjie Luke Puke rol nou seker lekker in die ponde. Nee wat, dink ek moet my nic verander na “exreni-op”
