WATCH as former Kings player and co-owner of Frankees, Tim Whitehead, provides exclusive access into the administrative chaos that led to the franchise's bankruptcy and the impact it had on his then teammates.

Whitehead's revelations - which can be heard from the ninth minute - tells a tale of young, inexperienced players being taken advantage of and manipulated to such an extent that they were forced to find employment elsewhere due to non-payment of their salaries.

Guest host, former Test referee Jonathan Kaplan, along with Anton van Zyl gets the episode underway by sharing their opinion on new Springbok coach Rassie Erasmus, especially his technical knowledge and how he managed to take game analysis to a different level.

In the fourth minute, the 29-year-old former centre, speaks about how he got into the professional game and the journey he underwent before calling time on his career before getting into the details of what he described as "the toughest part" of his career.

The 20th minute sees Kaplan touching on some law implementations that has him questioning what precedent has been set at the beginning of the Super Rugby season before getting into their Super Rugby predictions in the 24th minute.
