Kings assistant coach Chumani Booi says their next match against Connacht presents a good opportunity to secure their second victory of the season.
After eight rounds in the Pro14, the Kings have scored 23 tries, with the majority coming from the previous three home matches at the Madibaz Stadium against three of the top four teams from last season: the Glasgow Warriors, Scarlets and Leinster.
The attacking intent has seen the Kings climb off last place above the Dragons in Conference B.
The Port Elizabeth-based team next face Connacht, who are coming off a solid win against the Dragons, but Booi says they are confident their enterprising style can break their losing streak.
‘Obviously, it’s a home game for us [against Connacht] and so we will be targeting it [for a win],’ Booi said. ‘We know that they are bringing a strong side. We are targeting this match for our second win of the season.
‘The manner in which we have been able to score tries is a big positive for us. The backs have managed to gel very well. Obviously the forwards work so hard to give us good ball and they set up the platform for the backs.
‘We are therefore focusing more on our strengths, which is ball in hand and ensuring that we get quick ball to move it to our speedsters outside.’
Connacht comfortably won the fixture between these two sides in Ireland last season.
