Durban - Khaya Majola will start at flank for the Sharks when they host the EP Kings in a Currie Cup clash at Kings Park on Saturday (14:00 kick-off).

Majola, a former SA Under-20 player, takes over the openside role from Jacques Botes, who was ruled out with a SC joint injury. It will be Majola's first Currie Cup start.

Forwards coach Paul Anthony says they expect a tough game.

"We have to play well and have a good game, we have to man up defensively and we just have to keep winning," Anthony said via a statement released to the media.

"EP Kings will be difficult because they have nothing to lose, they can play as they want, with some sort of freedom. There won’t be any pressure on them, so we need to settle down, focus and go hard at them."
