Kings head coach Deon Davids has made two changes to his starting line-up for their match with the Sunwolves in Port Elizabeth on Saturday.

Luzuko Vulindlu – who suffered a concussion in their 42-20 loss to the Hurricanes in Round Five – is replaced by Siyanda Grey on the wing.

Aidon Davis will make his first Super Rugby start for the Kings this season as he replaces Jacques Engelbrecht at number eight.

Good news for the Port Elizabeth side is that prop Schalk Ferreira is named amongst the replacements after recovering from a concussion that he picked up in the 57-24 loss to the Crusaders in Round Three.
