Isuzu Southern Kings Head Coach Deon Davids has named an unchanged starting XV that will take on Scarlets in Round 5 of the Guinness PRO14 at Parc y Scarlets on Saturday.

Following an impressive 38-28 win over Glasgow Warriors at the Nelson Mandela University last week, Davids has opted to stick to the same starting lineup this week, making only three changes on the bench.

“It is important that we have consistency in place as a team, hence we have stuck to the same starting XV as last week” Davids said about his team selection this week.

“The side played well last week and with each passing week we are improving, particularly in following the game plan and gelling with each other. We are hoping to continue with the good things that we did last week and learn from the areas where we fell short.”

While the starting lineup is unchanged, the Isuzu Southern Kings have made three changes on the bench which will see the experienced Rossouw de Klerk as front row backup, Schalk Oelofse covering the second row and a potential debut in the backline for new recruit Tristan Blewett.

The Isuzu Southern Kings travelled to Wales on Tuesday, where they face Scarlets in Llanelli. The side will move on to Italy next week where they will take on Benetton.

Kick-off for Saturday’s match against Scarlets is at 19h30.
