Cape Town - Eastern Province Kings captain Luke Watson has been ruled out of action for at least four weeks with concussion.

Watson, who has played little rugby in the last year due to injuries, suffered a head knock in the 25th minute of the Kings' 30-25 loss to the Blue Bulls in Pretoria last Saturday.

Having recovered from a foot injury to lead the Kings in their opening Currie Cup match against WP, Watson also missed their second outing against the Golden Lions with flu.

The only other concerns are flyhalf Gary van Aswegen and centre Tim Whitehead, both of whom are being monitored after sustaining knocks to their knees during the Bulls game.

The winless Kings host the Lions in Port Elizabeth this Saturday (19:10 kick-off).
