The Boland Cavaliers will face the Toyota Free State XV in Bloemfontein on Saturday (28/03/2015) with a new captain in Fullback Eric Zana. Zana takes over the captaincy duties from Gavin Annandale, who sustained an injury in the Vodacom Cup match against DHL Western Province this past weekend.
As the team’s regular vice-captain and a senior member of the Cavaliers’ Vodacom Cup squad, Zana’s experience should enable him to steer Boland’s ship with confidence. Zana is also the team’s primary goal kicker and a player with proven game breaking abilities.
