    2013-04-10 14:27

    Cape Town - Demetri Catrakilis returns to the Kings' starting line-up for their clash against the Rebels in Melbourne on Saturday.

    Kick-off is at 11:40.

    Catrakilis came off the bench in their 28-28 draw against the Brumbies last weekend to kick the game-tying conversion, and is reinstated in the No 10 jersey for their final tour match.

    As a result George Whitehead reverts to fullback, while Siviwe Soyizwapi drops to the bench.

    In the final backline change, scrumhalf Shaun Venter gets the nod ahead of Argentinean Nicolas Vergallo.

    The Kings are currently bottom of the South African Conference and 14th in the Overall standings with a win and a draw from their six matches to date.

    The Rebels, coming off a 30-23 victory over the Force, find themselves in fourth and 12th spots in the Australian Conference and Overall log, respectively.





    15 George Whitehead, 14 Sergeal Petersen, 13 Waylon Murray, 12 Andries Strauss (captain), 11 Ronnie Cooke, 10 Demetri Catrakilis, 9 Shaun Venter, 8 Cornell du Preez, 7 Wimpie van der Walt, 6 Devin Oosthuizen, 5 Rynier Bernardo, 4 Steven Sykes, 3 Grant Kemp, 2 Hannes Franklin, 1 Schalk Ferreira
