EP Kings Head Coach, Carlos Spencer, kept his word when he said we will see a different side to the one that played the Bulls a fortnight ago, when they face the Sharks at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Friday.

Spencer made 9 changes to his starting line up that beat the Bulls XV 66 – 28.

EP Kings captain and eigthman, Luke Watson, lock Steven Cummins, flank Thembelani Bholi, centre Tim Whitehead, wing Siviwe Soyizwapi and fullback Scott van Breda are the only players retaining their starting positions.

Amongst the forwards we see a whole new front row as Lizo Gqoboka, Albe de Swardt and Charl du Plessis replaces BG Uys, Edgar Marutlulle and Simon Kerrod.

David Bullbring, who was part of the Southern Kings Super Rugby Squad in 2013, rejoins the Kings after a short spell at the Bulls, and will be taking over from Cameron Lindsay at lock. On the flank Devin Oosthuizen replaces Paul Schoeman.

There are also a few new faces that will feature in the backline, with one positional change.

Italian scrumhalf, Tobie Botes will have his first outing for the Kings as he replaces Jaco Grobler. Gary van Aswegen, who is on trial from Western Province takes over from George Whitehead. Siviwe Soyizwapi changes from right wing to left, as he replace Ntabeni Dukisa to make way for Siyanda Grey on the right wing.

Shane Gates will start at inside centre as he takes over from Dwyne Jenner.

New faces on the bench includes, Michael van Vuuren, Shaun McDonald, Enrico Acker and IRB Junior World Cup Finalist, Sergeal Petersen.

Kick-off will be at 7pm. (not televised)
