SCOTT van Breda’s loan move to Southern Kings was a “win-win situation” according to Worcester Warriors boss Alan Solomons.

The utility back returned to Sixways earlier this month after a successful two-match spell with the Pro14 outfit.

Van Breda came off the bench in the defeat to Glasgow Warriors before producing a man-of-the-match display in the victory over Ospreys.

He landed three penalties with two in the first half and converted Erich Cronje’s try as Kings secured their first away win in the Pro14.

Solomons said he was delighted by van Breda’s performances for the South African province.

“Robbie (Kempson, interim head coach at Kings) was over the moon to have Scotty,” Solomons said.

“He is a really good footballer and kicked everything.

“He kicked the conversion for their try and all the penalties and they won their first away game so they were chuffed to bits.

“It was great for Scotty as he had an opportunity to play at a good level. It was a positive all-round.”

Van Breda made seven appearances in his first season at Warriors and has featured just twice this term with both of those outings coming in the Premiership Cup.

“Kings approached us (about a loan move for van Breda) as Robbie knows us well,” Solomons said.

“They said they were over here and were struggling with injuries so they asked us whether there was a possibility of a loan.

“I thought it was a win-win situation for everybody. Scotty played two games and did pretty well.

“It’s not like he didn’t know Robbie well as he was his academy manager during his formative years in rugby at the Kings academy.”
