Cape Town - The Southern Kings on Monday submitted a provisional squad ahead of this year’s Super Rugby competition.

Only 31 players were included in the squad submitted to SANZAAR.

The South African Rugby Union (SARU) is believed to be hoping to fill the last few vacancies from unwanted players at other franchises.

SARU was forced to step in and control matters at the Kings after the EP Rugby Union was unable to pay its players.

The Kings do have a number of players in reserve, who have trained with them in recent weeks but have not been listed in their squad. They are: Vukile Sofisa (prop), Phillip du Preez, Tazz Fuzani, Tjiuee Uanivi (locks), Adion Davis, JP Jonk (loose forwards), James Hall, Marlon Lewis (scrymhalves), Theuns Kotze (flyhalf), Michael Makase (wing) and Leighton Eksteen (fullback).

Southern Kings provisional squad: Schalk Ferreira, Edgar Marutlulle, Jacobie Adriaanse, Steven Sykes, John Charles Astle, Chris Cloete, Thembelani Bholi, Jacques Engelbrecht, Ntando Kebe, Elgar Watts, Malcolm Jaer, Shane Gates, Stefan Watermeyer, Luzuko Vulindlu, Jurgen Visser, Sithembiso Sithole, Martin Bezuidenhout, Tom Botha, Schalk Oelofse, Cornell Hess, Cyril-John Velleman, Stephan Willemse, Junior Pokomela, Kevin Luiters, Louis Fouche, Lukhanyo Am, Phillipus du Plessis, Siyanda Grey, Jaco van Tonder, Marin Ferreira, Tyler Paul
