Cape Town - Springbok prop CJ van der Linde could feature for the Eastern Province Kings in the Currie Cup Premier Division later this year.

According to Die Burger's website, the 33-year-old pitched up at the Kings practice on Tuesday.

There was no official announcement from the Kings, but it is believed they want to test the fitness of the 75-Test capped Springbok.

Van der Linde joined English club, London Irish, in December last year, but has hardly featured for them due to injury.

He underwent an operation in early March after injuring a muscle in his chest.

Should Van der Linde prove his fitness, he could be an asset to the Kings.

Van der Linde played for the Lions last year, while he previously represented Free State, Leinster (Ireland) and Western Province.
