Loose forward, Shaun McDonald made the move to the EP Kings a few months ago and hasn’t looked back since. We caught up with the friendly giant…
How is PE going?
I am really enjoying it, it’s a great place. They don’t call it the friendly city for nothing. The people are super friendly, that is one of the best things about it.
How do the Kings rugby differ from the Ikeys?
I would say that it’s more professional because it is a different division. The game is faster with a higher intensity. Varsity Cup was an incredible experience but I am enjoying The kings because it is a new chapter and its different.
Who do you look up to in the team?
I would say CJ Van de linde because he is a nice guy, gives great advice and is always enthusiastic.
What are the Kings supporters like?
They are passionate. They always support us no matter the outcome. They are fantastic.
Favourite place to go for lunch/coffee?
It has to be Angelo’s, I think I spend most of my time there. It’s the best.
What do you do on your off days?
I have family there so I do spend a lot of time with them but I really do like to relax on my off days so will probably go to the beach, play X box or just chill.
Favourite Currie Cup game so far?
It would have to be when we played WP, I had my starting debut. I got my debut against the Lions where I came off the bench but against WP I started.
