SCOTT van Breda admitted he would be “open” to a third spell at Southern Kings this season in a bid to push his case for Worcester Warriors selection.

The in-form utility back was loaned out twice to Kings last month, featuring in matches against Glasgow Warriors, Ospreys and Connacht.

It proved a great move for van Breda and Kings as he kicked the South African club to their first ever victory in the Pro14.

Van Breda has continued his fine form at Sixways, producing a man-of-the-match display in Worcester Cavaliers’ 75-21 thrashing of Wasps A on Monday night.

But with chances in the Gallagher Premiership still hard to come by, van Breda said he would be willing to return to Kings where he started his career.

“Of course I would be open to (another loan move),” van Breda said.

“I had a chat to the analyst there the other day and it looks like there might be some new rules from January 1 that might make it tricky for me to get back.

“But if the opportunity comes I will jump at it.

“Game-time is game-time.”

On his past experience with Kings, van Breda said: “That was a lot of fun.

“I am lucky as Robbie Kempson (interim head coach at Kings) sorted that out for me.

“I know him really well as he was my first coach in the academy at Kings.

“Robbie and the analyst there used to be my roommates so it was really easy to settle in.

“They are a really good bunch of boys and are building an exciting team over there.

“I just tried to bring a little bit of my experience as they have got quite a lot of young guys. It was really nice to get some game-time and I think that showed on Monday night.

“If that was my first game in four or five weeks I don’t think it would have gone so well.”

With Warriors short on centres, the versatile van Breda stepped into midfield for Cavaliers and played a starring role against Wasps, notching 23 points.

“(My versatility) has been a blessing and a curse my whole career,” van Breda said.

“There have been some seasons where I have played two games on the wing, two at 15, two at 13.

“A couple of years ago I played 12 and 10.

“Once the first two phases are done we have a backline shape where it’s not down to the number on your back.

“Unless you are the number 10, the rest of us can just roam and have fun.”

Van Breda has featured just once in the Premiership since his arrival in the summer of 2018 with his other eight appearances coming in the cup competitions.

“I always get good feedback,” van Breda said.

“I just need to push the boys ahead of me and see what happens.

“(Coaches) Gordy (Gordon Ross) and Cheese (Mike Hill) give me full confidence every week to go out there, perform and just keep knocking on the door.

“That’s all I can do.”
