Former Sharks stalwart Waylon Murray will start for the Southern Kings for the first time this weekend, as he’s named in the number 13 jersey for the side to take on the Brumbies in Canberra.

Ronnie Cooke, who has been picked at outside centre in each of the Kings’ games to date, shifts to left wing, replacing the injured Hadleigh Parkes, who has returned to South Africa after suffering a fracture. The other backline change sees Nicolas Vergallo take over from Shaun Venter at scrum half.

Amongst the forwards, there have been a few more changes; Grant Kemp, Hannes Franklin, Reynier Bernardo and Cornell du Preez have all been added to the starting line-up this week.

  • @Uli (Comment 2) : And George Whitehead is a pretty useful fullback too. So all in all, it’s a decent backline.
