Mathabatha was speaking earlier on Tuesday following his meeting with the team to welcome them to the province.
“The team was known for disappointing us when playing away, but we’ve got this [new] class and they are turning the tables around,” he says.
“This class is saying to us, ‘It is possible, it is doable and we are ready’ and we can see that they are ready … I want to say to you that you’ve got what it takes, go to that field tomorrow and just do it,” he adds, linking it to the motto of the team’s technical sponsor Nike.
