Port Elizabeth - The Eastern Province Kings have lost flank Stefan Willemse for the rest of the season following an injury to his AC joint (shoulder) during the game against the Cell C Sharks in Durban on Saturday.

The medical team also reported that Darron Nell was battling with a calf strain and that there was a fifty fifty chance that he would not be available for selection.

The Kings are also without the services of regular hooker, Edgar Marutlulle and prop Lizo Gqoboka, both of whom are also battling with AC joint injuries.

On the plus side, Steven Sykes, who sat out the game against the Sharks with a knee injury, has been cleared by the medical team for selection.
