The Boland Kavaliers will not be rusty when the Currie Cup competition starts in July.

Coach Deon Davids is wrapping his senior players in cotton-wool with none of them competing in the Vodacom Cup competition.
By doing this, he hopes the Kavaliers will be a much greater force this time round.

“We plan several friendly matches before the fireworks start. At the moment we are consentrating on a professional conditioning programme that will hopefully lift our game,” Davids said.

Davids plans to play three friendly matches between June 16 to 27. There is also a possibility of a training match against the South African Under-21 side.
“We will be ready when the  Currie Cup starts,” Davids said.

“Our main goal is to be a much stronger side than last year. We want to be more competative and give the top sides a real run for their money. We want to be a force to be reckoned with.”

Rumours that scrumhalf Marnus Hugo could be a surprise choice for the SA Coastal XV that will face the British Lions in Port Elizabeth on June 16, seems to be spot on.

“Marnus is looking great in training. He is really set for a super season. But so is Janro van Niekerk, Zolani Mofu, Elgar Watts, Deon Scholtz and Cornell Hendricks,” Davids said.
