Davids looking for patience

The Kings only managed to score four tries in the match, which served as one of their pre-season hit-outs for Super Rugby.
"It was a hard week for us," said Davids. "The boys worked really hard during our camp leading into this game."
"It was a really good game and good test for us. Border really did a lot of good things. We did start a bit scrappy, making unforced errors.
"We had a lot of opportunities in the opposition's half that we did not finish. We just need to be a bit more patient and look after the ball."
Captain for the game Martin Bezuidenhout added: "There were guys coming back from injuries and young guys coming through, we tried different combinations, so here and there we did not finish well, but we will fix that in the next three to four weeks before our first Vodacom Super Rugby game."
The Southern Kings next face the South Western Districts Eagles in the last of the pre-season friendlies at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Saturday, February 11.
The side will then begin their Super Rugby campaign with a clash against Jaguares at home at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on February 25.
