Durban - The Sharks have agreed to loan four players to the Southern Kings as the Port Elizabeth-franchise prepares for the PRO14.

The Sharks on Wednesday posted on their official website that loose-forward Khaya Majola, scrumhalf Rowan Gouws, utility back S’bura Sithole and hooker Stephan Coetzee joined the Kings on Monday.

Sharks coach Robert du Preez commented: “With healthy competition in most positions and the need for continuity in a short competition like the Currie Cup, there are players who will unfortunately not get game time.

“This decision was taken in the best interests of the players concerned. They will now have an opportunity to get valuable game time as well as participate in a new tournament, against new opposition in venues they have never played in before.

“We wish them every success and look forward to watching them progress in the PRO14.”

Meanwhile, the Sharks also announced that hooker Andrew du Plessis was loaned to the Griffons, while scrumhalf Hanco Venter has requested an early release from his contract to pursue other opportunities.

Southern Kings' PRO14 squad (more players expected to be added):

Berton Klaasen, Bobby de Wee, CJ Velleman, Cornal Hendricks, Dries van Schalkwyk, Jacques Nel, Jarryd Sage, Khaya Majola, Lubabalo Mtyanda, Lusanda Badiyana, Masixole Banda, Ntabeni Dukisa, Oliver Zono, Pieter-Steyn de Wet, Rowan Gouws, S’bura Sithole, Schalk Ferreira, Stephan Greeff, Stephan Coetzee, Tango Balekile, Tienie Burger, Victor Sekekete, Yaw Penxe, Kurt Coleman
