Kings captain takes hat off to coaches

PROUD EP Kings skipper Darron Nell says sweating blood on the training pitch helped his team find an extra gear. The added push was used effectively to battle through 20 gruelling minutes of extra time before the team were able eventually to subdue the Leopards 32-29 in their Absa Currie Cup first division semifinal.

The game went into overtime after the sides were locked at 22-22 at the end of normal time in front of a spellbound crowd at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Friday.

"All credit to our coaches who have kept us in top shape this season. This team have character and the last 20 minutes reflected that," a relieved Nell said.
