Bezuidenhout to front Rebels

Hooker Martin Bezuidenhout is the only change to the Kings starting XV ahead of their clash against the Rebels in Port Elizabeth on Saturday.

Bezuidenhout replaces Michael Willemse, who drops to the bench. Loose forward Stefaan Willemse comes in for Ruaan Lerm on the bench, as Lerm has been ruled out with an ankle injury.

The game marks the Kings' first in South Africa following a relatively successful tour to Australia. Last week, the Kings claimed their first-ever win against the Waratahs in Sydney.
