Not the best of starts.
Leinster are the first PRO14 team to play South African opposition in their backyard this afternoon, and currently lead the Kings 7-3 at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.
The Irish province are on a two-week tour of the country, with a game scheduled against the Cheetahs next weekend. Things however, haven’t gotten off to the best of starts in Port Elizabeth, with a dismal attendance for the first game.
Less than 500 people are in attendance for the first PRO14 fixture in South Africa. Lets hope things improve going forward.
