Uma ubafaka esiwombeni sesibili ubheka ukuthi iqembu esidlala nalo selikhathele. Bazongena bakwazi ukumelana nomdlalo, bakhombise izinga labo, bawuqede umdlalo. Njengomqeqeshi lezo yizinto okufanele ukwazi ukuzilawula kuncike kokubone ejimini nokushiwo uyena umdlali. Ngiyethemba ukuthi ngokuhamba kwesikhathi bazokwazi ukuwudlala wonke umdlalo. Kodwa ngeke kwenzeke ngokushesha.”

UKomphela uthe nakuba benqobe ngamagoli amathathu kodwa bebengayixebula ngangaphezulu i-Arrows.

“Sidonse kanzima esiwombeni sokuqala okungenzeka ukuthi kudalwe wukuthi bayazi ukuthi sidlala kanjani. Esiwombeni sesibili kube ngcono. Bekufanele sishaye amagoli angaphezu kwalawa esiwashayile. Kukhona elishaye ipali likade ligotshiwe, nelitholwe nguMolangoane obekufanele nje ashaye inethi. Lokho bekungenza amagoli abe yisihlanu. Kodwa bekungelula njengoba kugcine izinombolo zisho ebhodini. Abadlali bethu badlale kahle ikakhulukazi esiwombeni sesibili. Emuva kwegoli lesibili bakhombise ukuvuka kodwa elesithathu belisho ukuthi sekuphelile ngabo,” kusho uKomphela.
