LLANELLI – The Southern Kings have rewarded match-winning form by naming an unchanged XV for Saturday's Pro14 clash against Scarlets in Llanelli, Wales.

Last week the Kings shocked friend and foe alike by defeating Glasgow Warriors 38-28 and coach Deon Davids has opted to field the same starting XV.

“It is important that we have consistency in place as a team, hence we have stuck to the same starting XV as last week,” Davids said.

“The side played well last week and with each passing week, we are improving, particularly in following the game plan and gelling with each other. We are hoping to continue with the good things that we did last week and learn from the areas where we fell short.”
