As the Kings return from their winter break, a number of familiar faces are included in the starting XV. The team will be captained by Schalk Ferreira and will be chasing its first ever win in the Guinness PRO14. Yaw Penxe, Kurt Coleman, Berton Klaasen and Dries van Schalkwyk are some of the team’s key performers who will line out in the Scottish capital for a game that will broadcast live on BBC Alba and SuperSport 1.
Top tackler Andisa Ntsila (132) did not travel with the team on their last trip to Europe before heading back to South Africa for back to back Derby games with the Toyota Cheetahs.
