The Kings’ new acquisition, Anthony Volmink, will make his Pro14 debut against the Scarlets in Port Elizabeth on Sunday.

Volmink, who has joined the Kings’ ranks on loan from the Lions for the remainder of the Pro14 season, replaces veteran wing Alshaun Bock.

Martin Nel has been named to start at inside centre pending a late fitness test. If he is unavailable, Jacques Nel will start in the midfield.

The only other change comes in the pack, where blindside flank Martinus Burger comes in ahead of Jurie van Vuuren.
