Cape Town - The Kings have named their squad for Saturday's Super Rugby warm-up against the Border Bulldogs in East London.
The match kicks off at 17:15 and will be played at Buffalo City Stadium.
The Kings endured a tough Super Rugby season in 2016, winning just two of their 15 matches in the regular season to finish seventh in the South African Group ahead of only the Sunwolves.
They will be expecting more this season, however, given that they will play the five Australian franchises and none of the New Zealand teams.
The Kings start their season at home on February 25 with a clash against the Jaguares at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth.
