Eastern Province Kings coach Carlos Spencer has made two changes to his starting XV for Saturday’s clash with Griquas in Kimberley.
Spencer has kept faith with the same back-line which started last weekend’s 53-24 defeat to the Sharks in Durban.
The changes are amongst the forwards where Tim Agaba and Cameron Lindsay come into the run-on side at number eight and lock respectively.
Agaba’s elevation to the starting line-up means that Paul Schoeman moves from number eight to the blindside flank where he replaces Stefan Willemse – who is sidelined with a shoulder injury – while Lindsay takes over from Darron Nell who is amongst the replacements.
A captain is yet to be named for the side, as neither Nell nor Steven Sykes will be in the run-on side.
Spencer said he would only announce the new skipper on Thursday.
EP Kings: 15 Siviwe Soyizwapi, 14 Ronnie Cooke, 13 Tim Whitehead, 12 Shane Gates, 11 Ntabeni Dukisa, 10 Gary van Aswegen, 9 Tobie Botes, 8 Tim Agaba, 7 Devin Oosthuizen, 6 Paul Schoeman, 5 Steven Cummins, 4 Cameron Lindsay, 3 CJ van der Linde, 2 Martin Ferreira, 1 Charles Marais.
