Each drafted player will be get an opportunity to training and be accessed by the PSL side for a one-month long trial.
“There is something different about these boys, they are so dedicated and talented. I think this is our best group yet, I believe they will do well against SuperSport,” said da Gama.
“You can see when you are working with them that these boys are dedicated to what they are doing. They are eager to learn and they always work very hard during training sessions.” said Shakes Mashaba
