Kings head coach Deon Davids has made four changes to his starting line-up for Saturday's clash with the Bulls in Port Elizabeth.

Three alterations are in the back-line while openside flanker CJ Velleman has been replaced by Chris Cloete, in a rotational change, up front.

On the right wing, Luzuko Vulindlu replaces Siyanda Gray while Lukhanyo Am comes into the midfield.

Am will start at outside centre while Stefan Watermeyer, who wore the number 13 jersey in the triumph over the Sunwolves last weekend, shifts in a position where he takes over from Shane Gates, who is sidelined with a foot injury.

The final change sees James Hall replacing Ntando Kebe at scrum-half. On the bench, Leighton Eksteen has been bracketed with JP Du Plessis.
