Cape Town - The Kings have made a late change to their team to face the Stormers in a Super Rugby game in Port Elizabeth on Saturday.
Prop Kevin Buys has been withdrawn with a back injury and is replaced by Grant Kemp, who moves into the starting team from the bench.
Director of rugby, Alan Solomons, said Buys was withdrawn following a knock he took during their 48-18 loss to the Bulls in Pretoria last weekend.
“Kevin took a knock to the back during the game against the Bulls and is still not 100%.
“Kevin is replaced by Grant Kemp in the starting 15, who moves up from the bench, with Charl du Plessis moving onto the bench for his debut Super Rugby game,” said Solomons.
