Cape Town - Prop Sti Sithole and lock Tjiuee Uanivi havejoined the Southern Kings squad as they prepare for Super Rugby.

The 22-year-old Sithole is contracted to Western Provinceand played for the

Stormers in their first pre-season match against the SWDEagles in George a fortnight ago.

However, the Stormers have enough depth in the front rowdivision and with Schalk Ferreira the only loosehead prop in the Kings squad, Sitholehas been drafted in.

Uanivi, who starred for Namibia at last year’s Rugby WorldCup in England, has also joined the Kings and, together with Sithole, couldmake his debut for the franchise in their pre-season warm-up against theCheetahs on Friday.

Meanwhile, the Kings have a few injuries following their22-16 pre-season win against the SWD Eagles in George last Friday.

Head coach, Deon Davids, said hooker Edgar Marutlulle hadsustained a blow to the head which resulted in a cut to the ear, while propJacobie Adriaanse suffered concussion.

According to Davids, lock Schalk Oelofse also sustained aminor calf strain and was being monitored.

Davids said he was very happy with the first friendlyagainst SWD, which had allowed coaches to focus on combinations, as well asimproving the team's performance.
