• Giant to start for Kings

    Giant Mtyanda will replace the injured Wilhelm van der Sluys in the only change to the Kings' lineup to face the Bulls in Pretoria on Saturday.

    Van der Sluys, who joined the Kings on loan from the Worcester Warriors earlier in the season, has been sidelined with concussion, which has prompted the elevation of Mtyanda.

    'We are happy to be able to keep our changes to a bare minimum in an effort to remain consistent and continue with the momentum we are building as a team,' Kings coach Deon Davids commented. 

    'It is important that we finish the season on a high note, and consistency will go a long way in ensuring that we retain the best possible combinations and continue to play the high standard of rugby we have set for ourselves.'

    Kings – 15 Malcolm Jaer, 14 Wandile Mjekevu, 13 Berton Klaasen, 12 Luzuko Vulindlu, 11 Makazole Mapimpi, 10 Lionel Cronje (c), 9 Louis Schreuder, 8 Andisa Ntsila, 7 Tyler Paul, 6 Chris Cloete, 5 Lubabalo Mtyanda, 4 Irne Herbst, 3 Ross Geldenhuys, 2 Michael Willemse, 1 Mzamo Majola.
    Subs: 16 Martin Bezuidenhout, 17 Schalk Ferreira, 18 Dayan van der Westhuizen, 19 Mzwanele Zito, 20 Thembelani Bholi, 21 Stefan Ungerer, 22 Masixole Banda, 23 Yaw Penxe.
