“We were pleased that Luke got through the game against SWD and it set him up for his return, and it’s great to have him back. We have pretty good structures which have been in place since our campaign started in November, A lot of our inspiration and motivation is internally driven by the team, and with the strong structures we have, I am sure it will be a smooth transition back into the team.” Said Kings coach Alan Solomons.
