SKIPPER Stephan Zaayman has been forced to pull out of the EP Kings team to face the SWD Eagles in George tomorrow after taking a knock in training.
Hooker Albe de Swardt will now take over as skipper with Ivan-John du Preez taking Zaayman’s place at No 8 in the team to play in a Vodacom Cup showdown.
Despite not being involved, a determined Zaayman says his teammates will “fight fire with fire” against the Eagles.
“It is going to be a tough physical battle. We have looked at the videos and analysed their play and they are a team that like to get under your skin,” Zaayman said.
“But that is not a problem for us because we will stick to our game plan and be more physical than them. You have to have a positive attitude on the field. You cannot go into a game with a mindset that you will be bullied by them,” he said.
