Two changes for EP Kings

Date published: September 30 2014

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.
Replacements: 16 Alb
