Cape Town - The Eastern Province Kings have made a late change to their side that will host Western Province at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth on Saturday (kick-off at 19:00).

The union confirmed on Thursday that 31-year-old Schalk Ferreira would start in place of loosehead prop Lizo Gqoboka, who has picked up a knee injury.

Basil Short will take Ferreira’s place on the bench.

Western Province have named a strong side for the pre-Currie Cup friendly that will see the Springbok duo of Jean de Villiers and Juan de Jongh operate in midfield.
