After their first away victory since 2013 the Kings will be over the moon, even it was against the Sunwolves. The Kings scored four tries in the clash and will be brimming with confidence now that they are back home.
The visitors will be full of confidence themselves after a two-match winning streak against their old rivals the Bulls and then managing to overcome a rampaging Jaguares side last weekend. That said, the Stormers haven’t won three games on the bounce since the beginning of 2015.
The Stormers currently top the Africa 1 conference after their two straight wins and are three points above the next placed Cheetahs on five points. A win this weekend will create a great buffer and distance themselves from their competition.
Despite their big win in Singapore the Kings only collected four points which puts them at the bottom of the Africa 2 Conference. They will need to start picking up points if they are to avoid the bottom of this competitive group.
The Stormers have all the historical cards going into the game having won all three meetings between these sides including a 28 point victory in the last one. In fact, the Kings have never beaten a fellow South African team, losing all 15 such meetings and failing to pick up even a losing bonus point.
The Stormers will try to utilise their excellent phase play this weekend as they have scored six tries after four or more phases of play so far this campaign, more than any other team in the competition.
Kings head coach Deon Davids spoke about the rotations in his side and how they need to use their opportunities well on Saturday.
“The guys understand that they have to grab their opportunities with both hands. It’s all about performing in the Kings jersey,” Davids told News24.
“Ricky (Schroeder) has been knocking on the door, and I’m glad he’s getting this opportunity now. He will have to make it worthwhile.
“I’ve rotated Luzuko Vulindlu and Berton Klaasen for our centre combination. I feel that Waylon Murray, with this experience, at number 13 will be good for us.”
