Fouché starts for Kings

Date published: May 19 2016

The Kings have named their side that will face the Sharks in their Super Rugby clash in Durban, with Louis Fouché included at fly-half.

Fouché replaces Elgar Watts in the number ten jersey and is joined in a new half-back combination by scrum-half Ntando Kebe. James Hall is not included in the matchday 23 as Kevin Luiters is the back-up nine.

After their loss at the Cheetahs, there is a brand new front-row as Schalk Ferreira and Jacobie Adriaanse pack down either side of hooker Martin Ferreira while Steven Sykes returns at lock to captain the side.

In the only other change to the team, Stefan Willemse replaces JP Jonck as the Kings look to cause a shock in the derby clash in Durban.

Kings: 15 Jurgen Visser, 14 Lukhanyo Am, 13 JP du Plessis, 12 Shane Gates, 11 Luzuko Vulindlu, 10 Louis Fouché, 9 Ntando Kebe, 8 Aidon Davis, 7 Thembelani Bholi, 6 Stefan Willemse, 5 Schalk Oelofse, 4 Steven Sykes (c), 3 Jacobie Adriaanse, 2 Martin Ferreira, 1 Schalk Ferreira
