IF the EP Kings want to nail down a berth in the semifinals of the Absa Currie Cup First Division they must subdue the SWD Eagles in what is expected to be a hotly contested showdown at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium tonight (kick-off 7pm).
One of the biggest threats to the Kings' hopes of Currie Cup glory will be the attacking presence of Eagles wing Alshaun Bock, who has already scored 16 tries this season. If the Kings do not find a way of keeping Bock in check, their hopes of climbing up the log table will be seriously challenged.
With only four league games left before the play-offs, the margins for error will be small in what could be a defining match for the Kings as they bid to make their mark in the Currie Cup.
