DU TOIT AT FLYHALF FOR KINGS

TEAM ANNOUNCEMENT: THERE WERE INSTANT CALL-UPS FOR RECENT SIGNINGS MARTIN DU TOIT AND MZAMO MAJOLA WHEN SOUTHERN KINGS HEAD COACH DEON DAVIDS EARLIER TODAY NAMED HIS SQUAD TO TAKE ON GLASGOW WARRIORS IN A PRO14 CLASH ON FRIDAY.

Flyhalf Du Toit is included in the run-on XV whilst Majola takes his place on the bench as replacement prop forward.

Other changes made to the team that did duty for the Kings in their last fixture against Benetton sees wing Yaw Penxe return at the expense of Sibusiso Sithole who has unfortunately sustained a long-term knee injury.

Kings fans will breathe a huge sigh of relief upon the news that star fullback Masixole Banda has fully recovered from the knock he sustained in the match against Benetton and retains his status as an ever-present in the Kings side this campaign. Other changes to the backline see Berton Klaasen and Luzuko Vulindlu re-united as centre pairing with Jacques Nel dropping to the bench and fit-again Rudi Van Rooyen taking over at scrumhalf from Godlen Masimla. Rowan Gouws has been drafted into the squad as replacement scrumhalf.
