Kings coach Deon Davids has been unable to travel with the team on their Pro14 tour due to medical reasons.
In a statement on Monday, the Kings said that in Davids’ absence, Barend Pieterse will take over the coaching reins.
The winless Kings are set to face Ulster this Friday, followed by clashes against the Ospreys and Leinster overseas.
Davids may join up with the squad at a later date.
