SWANSEA – The bottom of conference B log Southern Kings on Thursday named one change to their team to take on Welsh outfit Ospreys in a their Pro14 clash at the Liberty Stadium in Swansea Friday.
Left wing Anthony Volmink is replaced by Michael Makase with the remaining members of the team all offered another chance despite their 59-10 thrashing by Ulster last week.
Concerns about the fitness of flyhalf Martin Du Toit (lower back) and scrumhalf Rowan Gouws (ankle) were alleviated as both players passed fitness tests this week.
Coach Deon Davids also arrived to join their touring group this week. Davids missed the match against Ulster due to illness and Barend Pieterse acted as interim-coach in his absence.
In a show of faith in their bench as well, the Kings have also made just a single change among their replacements with Luvuyo Pupuma coming in for the injured Daylan Van Der Westhuizen.
The team will once again be captained by hooker Michael Willemse.
