Luiters at scrumhalf for Kings

The Kings have made two changes to their starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Crusaders in Christchurch.

Martin Ferreira replaces Edgar Marutlulle at hooker, while Kevin Luiters starts at scrumhalf in place of Ntando Kebe.

'Edgar put in a sterling  performance against the Chiefs last weekend and the move is in no way an indictment of his performance,' coach Deon Davids said. 'Ntando has started for us in two games now, so it's more of a rotational move, with Kevin also bringing a bit of experience to the field.'

Kings – 15 Jurgen Visser, 14 Luzuko Vulindlu, 13 Stefan Watermeyer, 12 Shane Gates, 11 Malcolm Jaer, 10 Louis Fouché, 9 Kevin Luiters, 8 Jacques Engelbrecht, 7 Thembelani Bholi, 6 Chris Cloete, 5 JC Astle, 4 Steven Sykes (c), 3 Jacobie Adriaanse, 2 Martin Ferreira, 1 Schalk Ferreira.
Subs: 16 Edgar Marutlulle, 17 Sti Sithole, 18 Tom Botha, 19 Schalk Oelofse, 20 Cyril-John Velleman, 21 Ntando Kebe, 22 Elgar Watts, 23 JP du Plessis.
