The Kings have made two injury-enforced changes for Saturday's game against the Brumbies in Port Elizabeth.

Flank Chris Cloete has been ruled out with concussion and his place in the run-on XV is taken by Stefan Willemse.

Chrysander Botha will play fullback in the absence of Masixole Banda, who is nursing a hamstring strain he sustained last weekend against the Sharks.

Elsewhere, Thembelani Bholi is the only new addition to the bench.

The Kings are on a three-match winning streak and will be looking to extend that run to four with victory over the Brumbies.
