Kings cotton-wool stars


  • 09 Jul 2013

The Kings have made 12 changes for their final league match against the Sharks in order to save the bulk of their stars for the promotion-relegation battle with the Lions.

While Kings director of rugby Alan Solomons has opted to retain a few senior players such as Bandise Maku, Darron Nell, and Michael Killian on the bench, the likes of Andries Strauss, Ronnie Cooke, and Demetri Catrakilis have been left out of the match-day squad completely.

Steven Sykes will lead the Kings when they tackle his old side, the Sharks, in Durban.

The first match of the two-game promotion-relegation series will take place on 27 July in Port Elizabeth.

Kings – 15 Siviwe Soyizwapi, 14 Hadleigh Parkes, 13 Waylon Murray, 12 Shane Gates, 11 Marcello Sampson, 10 George Whitehead, 9 Nicolas Vergallo, 8 Jacques Engelbrecht, 7 Mpho Mbiyozo, 6 Devin Oosthuizen, 5 David Bulbring, 4 Steven Sykes (c), 3 Kevin Buys, 2 Hannes Franklin, 1 Charl du Plessis.
Subs: 16 Grant Kemp, 17 Bandise Maku, 18 Darron Nell, 19 Thabo Mamojelle, 20 Aidon Davis, 21 Shaun Venter, 22 Michael Killian.
