Cheetahs executive committee member and rugby commentator, Makhaya Jack, has blamed the Southern Kings players for lack of commitment.
The Kings slumped to their 12th straight Guinness Pro 14 defeat when they went down 45-21 to the Cheetahs in Port Elizabeth last week.
According to Jack, though SA Rugby union (Saru) is partly to be blamed for the Kings’ crisis, the players should also take the responsibility.
He says the Cheetahs played the last 10 minutes of the match with 13 men and the Kings could not capitalize on their numerical advantage.
“You don’t know what they are doing right now, whether they are playing rugby or not playing rugby because there is no commitment no skill whatever. When you are in a journey the best thing for you is to go back to your starting point. I think for Deon Davids is call the experts the rugby gurus and say I have this problem I need your assistance.”
Meanwhile, the Kings and the Cheetahs will meet again on Saturday in Bloemfontein. Fullback, Yaw Penxa, who has been one of the outstanding players, says there is still room for improvement in the team.
“That is not we wanted, obviously we want to get things right game by game. We take full responsibility, but we take it to the coaches at practice to fix our mistakes,” he says.
