Cape Town - Southern Kings interim head coach Robbi Kempson has named his 25-man squad for their second warm-up match against Namibia at Walvis Bay High School on Saturday.

Kempson made few changes to the team that will see the versatile Bobby de Wee shifting to openside flanker where he replaces Thembelani Bholi, who will be on the bench.

The halfback pairing of Stefan Ungerer at No 9 and Demetri Catrakilis at flyhalf will once again, like in the match against Georgia a fortnight ago, start the match.

JT Jackson will get a start at outside centre alongside No 12 Howard Mnisi. Christopher Hollis also returns to the side at right wing, while Masixole Banda will be the starting XV.

The South African Kings will be captained by lock JC Astle with scrumhalf, Stefan Ungerer serving as vice-captain.

Kick-off is at 15:00.

Southern Kings team to face Namibia is:

15 Masixole Banda, 14 Christopher Hollis, 13 JT Jackson, 12 Howard Mnisi, 11 Josiah Twum-Boafo, 10 Demetri Catrakilis, 9 Stefan Ungerer, 8 Tienie Burger, 7 Bobby de Wee, 6 Henry Brown, 5 JC Astle, 4 Aston Fortuin, 3 Pieter Scholtz, 2 Alandre van Rooyen, 1 Lupumlo Mguca

Substitutes: 16 Chad Solomon, 17 Xandre Vos, 18 Rossouw de Klerk, 19 Elrigh Louw, 20 Thembelani Bholi, 21 Josh Allderman, 22 Bader Pretorius, 23 Courtney Winnaar, 24 Aaron Brody, 25 Ig Prinsloo
