Watson boosts Kings

Luke Watson has returned from injury to captain the EP Kings in their Currie Cup clash against the Sharks on Saturday.

Initially named to play against the Pumas last week, the skipper was forced to sit out the match at the 11th hour due to a 'dead leg'.

He has since recovered and replaces the injured Jacques Engelbrecht in the side. 

In a rotational switch, loosehead prop Lizo Gqoboka gets a start and Schalk Ferreira drops to the bench for the game at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.

EP Kings – 15 Scott van Breda, 14 Siyanda Grey, 13 Ronnie Cooke (v-c), 12 JP du Plessis, 11 Luther Obi, 10 Karlo Aspeling, 9 Enrico Acker, 8 Tim Agaba, 7 Thembelani Bholi, 6 Luke Watson (c), 5 Cornell Hess, 4 Steven Sykes, 3 Tom Botha, 2 Martin Ferreira, 1 Lizo Gqoboka.
Subs: 16 Schalk Ferreira, 17 Edgar Marutlulle, 18 Simon Kerrod, 19 Stefan Willemse, 20 Paul Schoeman, 21 Dwayne Kelly, 22 Hansie Graaff.
