Lions wing signs for struggling Kings - report

Port Elizabeth - The Kings, still without a win in the PRO14 this year, have been given a boost by securing the signing of Lions wing Anthony Volmink.  

The HeraldLIVE website reported on Thursday that the 27-year-old speedster was due to arrive in Port Elizabeth shortly and that, while the deal had not yet been made official, terms had been agreed. 

Volmink could feature in the November 26 clash against the defending champion Scarlets. 

The Kings have found life tough in their first season of PRO14, losing all of their eight matches so far. 

There was at least some encouragement this past weekend when they ran Ulster close at the Wolfson Stadium, eventually going down 36-43. 

The two bonus points they picked up from that match were their first of the season. 

Having made his Super Rugby debut for the Lions in 2012, Volmink's biggest claim to fame is scoring a record nine tries for the Golden Lions in their massive 161-3 win over the Limpopo Blue Bulls in 2013 Vodacom Cup.
