Young Kings outfit preparing for baptism of fire against Joeys at Joeys

A new look and relatively young Kings outfit are preparing for a baptism of fire on Saturday when they head to Hunters Hill to take on rivals Joeys in a rematch of last year’s unofficial GPS decider.

Kings beat Joeys 43-19 in the final match of last season to claim the 2020 GPS premiership and hand the Cerise and Blue their only defeat of the season, but coach Hugh Perrett said it’ll be a very different looking Kings’ side that returns to Hunters Hill this weekend.

“We haven’t got many back from last year, we’ve got a really young group. Toby Stewart, Riley Hemsworth and Eddie Arnett are the only three returning boys from last year’s first XV,” Perrett told Rugby News.
