Ferreira to lead Southern Kings against SWD
February 09, 2017
Following the Southern Kings' 28-10 victory over the Border Bulldogs in last week's pre-season friendly in East London, Southern Kings head coach, Deon Davids, will give an opportunity to players who were not part of last week's squad and those who were used as substitutes to earn starting berths.

"Last week we gave the youngsters a chance to start, as well as guys who came back from injury. This week we are going to give the rest of the squad a chance to start and also manage the other players' involvement in the match," said Davids.

"We want to have as many players as possible having had some good game time. The guys that will start in this game will play longer than last week. "A guy like Chris Cloete, for example, needs a certain number of minutes of game time after coming back from injury."

Cloete, who had a stellar season with the Southern Kings last year before a knee injury setback, will be among 15 players that will be used from the bench.

Experienced prop Schalk Ferreira will lead the side as captain for the game.

Southern Kings: 15 Chrysander Botha, 14 Makazole Mapimpi, 13 Luzuko Vulindlu, 12 Waylon Murray, 11 Alshaun Bock, 10 Lionel Cronje, 9 Rudi van Rooyen, 8 Ruan Lerm, 7 Stefan Willemse, 6 Andisa Ntsila, 5 Mzwanele Zito, 4 Sintu Manjezi, 3 Ross Geldenhuys, 2 Michael Willemse, 1 Schalk Ferreira (captain). Replacements - from: Tango Balekile, Schalk van der Merwe, Justin Forwood, Tyler Paul, Cameron Lindsay, Chris Cloete, Thembelani Bholi, Christiaan de Bruin, Louis Schreuder, Pieter-Steyn de Wet, Yaw Penxe, Berton Klaasen, Johan Tromp, Malcolm Jaer, Coyi Banda.
