Isuzu Southern Kings name team to face Ulster

The Isuzu Southern Kings will face Irish side, Ulster, at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Sunday having made four personnel changes and one positional switch to their starting line-up in the first Guinness PRO14 home match of the 2018/19 season. Kick-off is at 14h15.

Fullback, Michael Botha, who was ruled out of last weekend’s match against Dragons due to a groin injury, will be back in the No15 jersey after making a full recovery.

The versatile Yaw Penxe shifts from the fullback to right wing for the match, replacing Michael Makase, who is out of the match-day squad for this week. The other change in the backline will see Godlen Masimla starting ahead of Rudi van Rooyen, who moves to the bench, at scrumhalf.

Two changes in the Isuzu Southern Kings forwards pack will see the side’s most capped player, Schalk Ferreira, making his first start of the new season at loosehead prop, while John-Charles Astle will start at No5 alongside lock partner Schalk Oelofse.

The Port Elizabeth-based Isuzu Southern Kings are keen to get their home leg of the competition off to a good start after opening the campaign with two matches on the road against Zebre (Italy) and Dragons (Wales)

"This is our first home game for the new season. We are really looking forward to playing in front of our home crowd," Head Coach Deon Davids said ahead of the clash.

"The guys showed some enthusiasm on the road, but were rusty in the first game; and last week we had a very slow start. So now we just have to keep building on the positive stuff."

Centre, Berton Klaasen, also expressed his enthusiasm at playing the first match of the season at home.

We are excited to play at home. We always get a lift from playing in PE. When we travel overseas the stadiums are often much smaller than ours here back home, and that can, at times, be intimidating," he said.

The visiting Ulster side will arrive at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on the back of two victories in their opening matches. On their last visit to the Bay, the Irish side emerged as a 36-43 winners following close encounter.

The home side is expecting nothing less than another heated exchange between the two sides.

"Our previous encounter against Ulster was a close and tough one. I’m certain that they will come out guns blazing, and we are aware that they are a real quality team. We are going to have to step it up this weekend," said Klaasen.

The Isuzu Southern Kings and Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium will provide great entertainment at the "Sunday Fun Day" with amazing events and give-aways throughout the day.

The day’s entertainment will include:

  • A supervised kids zone
  • Beer garden
  • Live music
  • Food trucks
  • Kick for Cash competition
  • Players signing session

Gates at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium open at 12pm on Sunday.

Ticket are available at the NMB Stadium Ticketpro office and all Ticketpro outlets.

Prices are:

  • R150 for the Royal Lounge
  • R50 for the East Stand
  • R20 for kids and students (available only at the NMB Stadium Ticket Office)

Three Ulster changes for Kings clash

The Ulster coaching team have named their match day squad for the Guinness PRO14 encounter against Southern Kings on Sunday (Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, 2.15pm SA time / 1.15pm BST).

There are three changes to the starting team as Tom O’Toole, Alan O’Connor and Sean Reidy are all recalled to the starting pack, while the backline remains in situ for the third consecutive game. 

O’Toole has recovered from a concussion suffered against Scarlets in Round 1 and takes his place in the front row alongside Andy Warwick and skipper Rob Herring. O’Connor joins Kieran Treadwell in the engine room, with Reidy, Marcell Coetzee and Nick Timoney selected in the back row.

John Cooney and Billy Burns continue in the half back positions, while Stuart McCloskey and Darren Cave are again paired in midfield.

Craig Gilroy, who became Ulster’s record try-scorer in PRO14 Rugby last weekend, is named on the right wing and Henry Speight is on the opposite flank.

Will Addison, who made 28 carries in last week’s win over Edinburgh, a historical record for an Ulster player, will line out at fullback.

Adam McBurney, Eric O’Sullivan and Wiehahn Herbst will provide front row cover, with Jean Deysel and Matthew Rea listed as the other forward replacements.

The trio of David Shanahan, Angus Curtis and Angus Kernohan, who have been on bench duty for the opening two rounds, will again provide cover for the backs.

Ulster team to play Southern Kings, Guinness PRO14 Round 3, Sunday 16th September, Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium (2.15pm SA time / 1.15pm BST):

(15-9): W Addison; C Gilroy, D Cave, S McCloskey, H Speight; B Burns, J Cooney;
(1-8): A Warwick, R Herring (captain), T O’Toole, A O’Connor, K Treadwell, M Coetzee, S Reidy, N Timoney.

Replacements (16-23): A McBurney, E O'Sullivan, W Herbst, J Deysel, M Rea, D Shanahan, A Curtis, A Kernohan.
