    Quotes from Head Coach, Robert du Preez.

    “This match is hugely important and it’s not about maintaining a hold on our log position, but also about building momentum and confidence.  This was supposed to be our momentum phase but we’re back to square one again so we need a win to get us back on track. And we need a proper win, it needs to be an all-out great performance and that will set us up nicely for the three derbies we have at home.”
