The Eastern Province Kings have signed Henning van der Merwe as their new kicking coach.

EP Rugby CEO Charl Crous confirmed that Van der Merwe, 28, had been signed until the end of the 2017 season.

"Henning comes with a great track record, having coached highly competitive teams in the Currie Cup, Varsity Cup and club championships," he said.

Van der Merwe joined the Kings from the Leopards, where he had been kicking coach for their senior and junior teams since last year.

He was also kicking coach for the North West University's Potchefstroom campus, where he trained, among others, the NWU Pukke Varsity Cup team.

Van der Merwe has also served as a kicking coach consultant for Boland and has presented a number of kicking clinics with the likes of Vlok Cilliers, Braam van Straaten and Louis Koen.

Van der Merwe, who started work at the Kings on Monday (July 21), said he was looking forward to working with the Kings players and to building towards Super Rugby in 2016.

"I must say that the setup here is very professional and everyone knows what he has to do. You can see that structures are in place and there a sense of things happening," he said.

Henning said his primary focus for the upcoming Currie Cup would be to work on the players timing and building their confidence under pressure.
