Try-scoring Sergeal back for Kings

George Byron

TEEN try-scoring sensation Sergeal Petersen is set to return to the Southern Kings starting line-up for their Super Rugby showdown against the Cheetahs in Bloemfontein on Saturday. “Sergeal is getting treatment for his groin strain and is doing well and will be available for selection,” Kings director of rugby Alan Solomons said.

Petersen became an instant hero with the Nelson Mandela Bay crowd when he scored two tries on his Super Rugby debut against the Western Force in February.

The team is expected to be named today and the Kings have no major injury concerns to consider besides the usual bumps and bruises following the game against the Bulls.

Flyhalf Demetri Catrakilis, who took a knock to the arm against the Bulls, is also available for selection.

Solomons forecast a “very tough game” in Bloemfontein. “It was an incredible achievement by the Cheetahs to beat the Sharks in Durban. What has happened now is that every South African team we play will be chasing a berth in the playoffs. So they are going to come hell for leather against us.
