Kings: Catrakilis loses a tooth during training

2013-05-24 00:00

CAPE TOWN — Kings flyhalf Demetri Catrakilis has revealed that he learnt one of rugby’s tougher lessons when taking part in training in preparation for Saturday’s Super Rugby clash with the Cheetahs in Port Elizabeth.

Catrakilis, who is one of 38 players called up to Heyneke Meyer’s Springbok training squad, may have been forgiven for thinking he would be treated like a king himself when he rocked up for training yesterday.

However, thanks to a training ground incident that may have gone wrong, the Kings pivot lost a tooth, which was found later by fellow Kings team-mate, Daniel Adongo. “If you play rugby please wear a gum guard during training...,” Catrakilis tweeted.
