Kings make three changes for Blues




Southern Kings Super Rugby head coach Deon Davids has made three changes to his team to play the Blues on Saturday.

The Kings were beaten by the Jaguares in their last match and loosehead prop Schalk Ferreira has been replaced by Sithembiso Sithole due to a hand injury.

In the backs James Hall starts at scrumhalf replacing Ntando Kebe and Jurgen Visser comes in at fullback replacing Jaco van Tonder.

Davids said that the Kebe and Visser changes were due to the expectecd weather conditions.

“On Saturday it will be windy and rainy, so we opted to swap James around with Ntando Kebe for tactical reasons,” Davids told Sport24.
