Kings name team to face Lions in qualifier

The Southern Kings have named their team to play the Lions at Ellis Park in the second Super Rugby promotion – relegation match.

The result of this weekend’s match will decide who plays in the 2014 Super Rugby tournament.

The Lions are the favourites to win the match as they have already beaten the Kings in Port Elizabeth and will have home advantage this weekend.

The Kings will also be without top point scorer Demetri Catrakalis and captains Luke Watson and Andries Strauss.

The Kings need to beat the Lions and prevent them from taking a bonus point from the match to ensure that they keep their Super Rugby status.
