There have been some late changes to the Eastern Province Kings side to face the Sharks XV in their final Vodacom Cup match at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Friday evening.
Luke Watson who was set to make his return to the starting XV has been ruled out with flu. Tim Whitehead will take over the captaincy from Watson against his former team.
Other late changes sees Paul Schoeman replace Tim Agaba at eighthman, who also suffers from flu. Tazz Fuzani comes in at lock to replace Stefan Willemse who moves to the openside flank. Thembelani Bholi moves from the openside flank to blindside to cover for Watson.
The only other change is in the front row where CJ van der Linde comes in for Simon Kerrod, who failed a fitness test.
Kick-off is at 7pm.
