Cape Town - The Southern Kings look set to play two of their PRO14 home matches in East London and George.

According to the HeraldLIVE website, the Kings will host Irish side Munster at Outeniqua Park in George on April 7, while they are also exploring the possibility of playing a game at the Buffalo City Stadium in East London.

Outeniqua Park is the home of the SWD Eagles, while the Buffalo City Stadium plays host to the Border Bulldogs.

Earlier this season, Kings hosted Irish side Ulster at the Wolfson Stadium in the Kwazakhele township.

Poor crowd attendances at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth are believed to have contributed to the Kings' desire to explore hosting matches away from their home ground.

The Kings are currently languishing at the bottom of Conference B in the PRO14, having lost all 10 their games.

Their next match is scheduled against Edinburgh in Scotland on January 5, 2018.
