Sykes back for Kings
- 02 Jul 2013
Steven Sykes has been named on the bench for the Kings' match against the Stormers in PE on Saturday.
The experienced lock has recovered from a shoulder injury and is the only change to the Kings' 22.
'He practised today and came through with no ill effects, but we will check his progress tomorrow to make sure everything is OK,' said Kings' director of rugby, Alan Solomons.
Sergeal Petersen remains on the sidelines, but the winger is expected to get a run in the EP Kings Currie Cup side.
Kings – 15 SP Marais, 14 Marcello Sampson, 13 Ronnie Cooke, 12 Andries Strauss (c), 11 Michael Killian, 10 Demetri Catrakilis, 9 Shaun Venter, 8 Jacques Engelbrecht, 7 Wimpie van der Walt, 6 David Bulbring, 5 Darron Nell, 4 Cornell du Preez, 3 Kevin Buys, 2 Bandise Maku, 1 Schalk Ferreira.
Subs: 16 Grant Kemp, 17 Hannes Franklin, 18 Steven Sykes, 19 Devin Oosthuizen, 20 Nicolas Vergallo, 21 George Whitehead, 22 Shane Gates.
