My Job is to Score Tries

Fans don't realise it but we really appreciate their support from the stands. Ultimately as players we do it for them.

Emirates Lions speedster Sibahle “Rabz’ Maxwane says crossing the tryline is what is expected of him everytime he steps onto the field. Such is the anticipation of the Eastern Cape- born winger by his followers.

“We are on a winning streak. Management has been drilling it into us that we need to trust the process and not get ahead of ourselves. The result will take care of itself.”

Rabz, who has accumulated a significant number of caps in the northern hemisphere competition over the past years, has shown his experience since the start of this season’s edition.

“Having played Pro14 for a few years and now the Vodacom URC, there is so much I have learnt in terms of how the teams play.

“The European teams bring quite a bit of flair and physicality. It’s a global competition, so teams are always learning from the experience of playing against one another, ” he explains.

Looking ahead to Edinburgh, Maxwane has an advantage as he has faced the Scottish outfit a few times in his career.

“I’ve had the opportunity to play against Edinburgh a few times during my time at the Cheetahs. They are very physical and will try and dominate us during such encounters.”

With fans allowed back at the stadium albeit 50%, the speedy winger believes his team will draw massive inspiration from the cheers.

“It’s always great having fans at the stadium, and to have them back at 50% capacity is such a boost for the guys. Fans don’t realise it but we really appreciate their support from the stands. Ultimately as players we do it for them,” he concludes.
