Spencer proud of EP Kings
Eastern Province Kings coach, Carlos Spencer, has expressed his delight after his side claimed their first Currie Cup win of the season by defeating the Steval Pumas 26-25 at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Friday.
"You just don't know how much it meant to them until we got out there in the middle of the field and had a talk afterwards," said Spencer.
"Although it was out last game, and it was the Pumas, it meant so much to them, and to see the emotion and the see the smiles on the guys' faces just made me proud. It meant a lot to them."
Spencer added that he was glad to have made the 4 584 local fans, who attended the game, proud of their last game.
"It was important to get that win because the supporters have stuck with us throughout the season.
"We showed this team is not a bunch of quitters because we stuck with it right until the end, and we did everything right until the final minute."
