• Pumas change two for Kings

    The Pumas have made two injury-enforced changes for their match against the EP Kings in Port Elizabeth on Friday.

    Flanker Brian Shabangu and eighthman RW Kember have replaced Jaco Bouwer (back injury) and Renaldo Bothma (broken cheek bone) respectively in the starting XV.

    To reach the semi-finals, the Pumas must beat the Kings, probably with a bonus point, and hope that the Free State Cheetahs and Blue Bulls slip up against the Golden Lions and Griquas respectively. 

    Pumas – 15 Coenie van Wyk, 14 JW Bell, 13 JW Jonker, 12 Stefan Watermeyer, 11 Rosco Speckman, 10 Justin van Staden, 9 Reynier van Rooyen, 8 RW Kember, 7 Brian Shabangu, 6 Corné Steenkamp (c), 5 Marius Coetzer, 4 Lubabalo Mtyanda, 3 Vincent Koch, 2 Frank Herne, 1 Corné Fourie.
    Subs: 16 Francois du Toit, 17 DeJay Terblanche, 18 Frikkie Spies, 19 Uzair Cassiem, 20 Dylon Frylinck, 21 JC Roos, 22 Jerome Pretorius.
