Cape Town - EP Kings captain Luke Watson could make his return to the playing field when they tackle Wales in June.

According to Die Burger's website, Watson is back training with the Kings' elite group as they prepare for their entry into the Currie Cup Premier Division later this year.

The 30-year-old has been out of action since undergoing an operation on a fractured foot last year.

While the South African Rugby Union (SARU) is yet to approve the game, the Kings look likely to tackle the Welsh in Port Elizabeth on June 10.

EP Rugby CEO, Charl Crous confirmed that talks were underway between SARU and Wales for them to play a match against the Kings.

“Wales are looking at bringing a wider squad down for the tour and are looking for a bit of game time ahead of their Test matches," said Crous.

The game will fit in with Wales' tour schedule, as they are playing their first Test match against South Africa in Durban on Saturday, June 14 before heading to Nelspruit a week later.
