Bader Pretorius will start at flyhalf for the Kings against Munster in Cork on Friday.
In one of four changes made by coach Deon Davids, Pretorius comes in to earn his first start for the Kings. He replaces the injured Ntabeni Dukisa.
The only other change to the backline is a direct swap that sees Berton Klaasen start at inside centre and Tertius Kruger drop to the bench.
Among the forwards, Steph de Wit gets the nod at openside flank in the absence of CJ Velleman, who is serving a three-match suspension. De-Jay Terblanche comes in for Luvuyo Pupuma at tighthead prop, with Pieter Scholtz providing front-row cover on the bench.
Utility back Ulrich Beyers has also been included on the bench.
