What a bloody disaster and theGriquas was without the Super 15 players in the Cheetah squad - in other words it was a Vodaom Cup team that beat the Kings..
It is clear that the present laisez faire - laisez passer approach of SARU did not work out - and something drastic is all that would prevent a farce in Super 15 this year.
I think it is late in the day - but SARU should take charge of the situation. They should look at all other franchises and provincial squads and put together a group of 36 players from those that is not in the present franchise squads and loan them to the Kings. Then try and pick the top 36 players from the other frnachises and provinces and the present Kings and proceed from there to get together a reasonable team.
Other frnachise players would not take part in any contract with the Kings - so the arrangment should be on a loan basis. Maybe Erasmus and some of his expert Consultants can then get a reasonable team on the road.
