  1. The Kings announced their team.

    Southern Kings: 15 Elric van Vuuren, 14 Marcello Sampson, 13 Wayne Stevens, 12 Hadleigh Parkes, 11 Siyanda Grey, 10 Wesley Dunlop, 9 Johan Herbst, 8 Jacques Engelbrecht, 7 Mpho Mbiyozo, 6 Rynier Bernado, 5 Darron Nell (captain), 4 Tomas Leonardi, 3 Grant Kemp, 2 Boetie Britz, 1 Lizo Gqoboko.

  2. Andries Coetzee should get a chance at flyhalf. He is a brilliant playmaker. But at least he’s in the team, so he’ll still be a factor.

    Go Lions!!

  3. That Kings team almost at full strength only missing SP Marais, Watson, Vergallo and two other internationals.

    Lions should win comfortably.

    I really like Franco Mostert, he has potential to go far. Why don’t they give Andries Coetzee a run on flyhalf?

  4. Is this the Lions’ strongest available team?

    • Probably, except that moving Coetzee to wing might limit him a bit. JJ Breet is probably included rather than Tecklenburg to strengthen the lineouts, which has been a problem
