    2016-04-01 07:00

    Cape Town - Sunwolves coach Mark Hammett has made four changes to his pack for their Super Rugby clash against the Kings in Port Elizabeth on Saturday.

    Hammett has kept the same backline that narrowly lost 30-27 to the Bulls in Singapore last weekend.

    Liaki Moli shifts from the back row and will scrum down on the blindside, Timothy Bond replaces Moli in the No 5 jersey, while Shinnosuke Kakinaga comes in for Takuma Asahara in the front row.

    Tomás Leonardi drops to the bench and Ed Quirk replaces him at No 8. The final change sees Yoshiya Hosoda named amongst the replacements making way for Moli at No 6.

    Saturday’s clash at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium is scheduled for 17:05.
