Kings make few changes after convincing victory

Neale Emslie

THE EP Kings have kept their changes to a minimum following their emphatic win over the Griffons in the Absa Currie Cup First Division, recalling only Darron Nell and Cornell du Preez for their rugby clash on Friday against the Leopards in Potchefstroom.

Big lock Nell returns to captain the side and adds plenty of experience to the pack, while Du Preez, who was one of the stars for the Southern Kings during their Super Rugby campaign, slots in at No8.

Tim Agaba moves to openside flank, with Devin Oosthuizen replacing Stefan Willemse on the other side of the scrum. Willemse is on the bench.

The backline is unchanged and that is a positive sign from the selectors, showing their faith in the players who ran riot against the Griffons.
