    Cape Town - The Kings team to face the Bulls at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday shows few changes from their previous game against the Stormers.

    There are three changes amongst the backs, while coach Matt Sexton has named an unchanged pack to the team that lost 19-11 in Cape Town on June 1.

    Michael Killian is back at right wing, replacing  Siviwe “Shakes” Soyizwapi, while Demetri Catrakilis - who was an injury withdrawal shortly before the Stormers game on June 1 - starts at flyhalf in place of George Whitehead.

    Shaun Venter is also back in the No 9 jersey, with Nicolas Vergallo - who was on Test duty for Argentina these last few weeks - moving back to the bench.

    Regular skipper Luke Watson - who missed the Stormers game with illness - has been sidelined for six months with an ankle injury.

    The clash in Pretoria kicks off at 17:05 on Saturday.





    15 SP Marais, 14 Michael Killian, 13 Ronnie Cooke, 12 Andries Strauss (captain), 11 Marcello Sampson, 10 Demetri Catrakilis, 9 Shaun Venter, 8 Jacques Engelbrecht, 7 Wimpie van der Walt, 6 Cornell du Preez, 5 David Bulbring, 4 Darron Nell, 3 Kevin Buys, 2 Bandise Maku, 1 Schalk Ferreira
