Back: Sergeal Petersen

The Kings have made just one change to their starting XV for Saturday's Super Rugby clash with the Waratahs in Port Elizabeth.

Teenage wing Sergeal Petersen returns on the right wing after missing the last two games due to a groin strain.

Petersen's inclusion means there is no place for Michael Killian while Siyanda Grey moves from right to left wing.

Inside centre Andries Strauss retains the captaincy with Luke Watson still on the bench.

Kings: 15 George Whitehead, 14 Sergeal Petersen, 13 Ronnie Cooke, 12 Andries Strauss (captain), 11 Siyanda Grey, 10 Demetri Catrakilis, 9 Shaun Venter, 8 Jacques Engelbrecht, 7 Wimpie van der Walt, 6 Cornell du Preez, 5 Rynier Bernado, 4 Steven Sykes, 3 Kevin Buys, 2 Bandise Maku, 1 Schalk Ferreira.
Replacements: 16 Virgile Lacombe, 17 Grant Kemp, 18 David Bulbring, 19 Luke Watson, 20 Nicolas Vergallo, 21 Waylon Murray, 22 Siviwe Soyizwapi.

Date: Saturday, May 4
Venue: Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, Port Elizabeth
