Cape Town - The EP Kings have been forced into late changes
ahead of their Currie Cup clash against the Pumas in Port Elizabeth on Friday
Skipper Luke Watson and Stefan Willemse have been withdrawn
due to leg injuries.
Unfortunately they have not responded to treatment as the
team management had hoped they would and have thus been replaced so as to not
risk them the remainder of our Currie cup campaign.
Cameron Lindsay has replaced Willemse on the bench, while
Thembelani Bholi has been moved to the starting line up in place of Watson,
with Paul Schoeman taking his place on the bench.
Steven Sykes will take over from Watson as captain.
