Not happy: Virgile Lacombe

French hooker Virgile Lacombe has revealed that he may look to escape his deal at the Kings, admitting he's 'tired' of the situation at the side.

The 28-year-old, who arrived in Port Elizabeth from Toulouse during the off-season, has yet to be used by the new Super Rugby outfit in 2013.

Lacombe is one of four foreign players at the franchise and with the rules stating that only two can be used in a match-day squad, opportunities of regular rugby are limited. That has led to him airing his frustrations on the show + Sport Rugby on Monday, after he had to fly back from the tour.

"I'm a little tired," he said. "I want things to be clear. I need a quick answer. I came to play Super Rugby, not to make money or anything.

"I broke my contract with Toulouse, which was not finished. I made sacrifices to come and in the end, the only reason I came for is not respected.

"I'll try to get a deadline early next week whether or not the bosses can put four foreigners in a side. If they cannot, I think I'll try to break my contract."
