TEAM ANNOUNCEMENT: Ricky Schroeder, one of the loan players, will continue to lead the Eastern Province Kings into battle Western Province.

The team that will host WP in a Currie Cup Round Four match on Saturday shows four changes to the starting line-up that lost to the Blue Bulls last week.

Coach Barend Pieterse confirmed that Schroeder would again captain the side, with hooker Mike Willemse as his vice-captain.

Pieterse has made four changes to his starting line-up, including two positional changes.

New addition Johan Greyling, who hails from Namibia, starts at outside centre and Burton Klaasen moves to inside centre, after Waylon Murray was given a rest.

"Waylon has been battling a bit with a tight hamstring, so we have decided to rest him ahead of this game and use the opportunity to see what JC [Greyling] can do," said Pieterse.

Among the forwards Ettiene Oosthuizen comes up from the bench to flank, while Sebastian Ferreira moves from flank to Lock to replace David Antonites, who has been ruled out after scans earlier this week revealed he had fractured his hand during the game against the Bulls.

Eastern Province Kings: 15 Johann Tromp, 14 Siviwe Soyizwapi, 13 Johan Greyling, 12 Burton Klaasen, 11 Sampie Mastriet, 10 Kobus Marais, 9 Ricky Schroeder (captain), 8 Christiaan De Bruin, 7 Etienne Oosthuizen, 6 Vince Jobo, 5 Sebastian Ferreira, 4 Mthetheleli Fuzani, 3 Vukile Sofisa, 2 Mike Willemse, 1 Justin Forwood.
Replacements: 16 Martin Bezuidenhout, 17 Barend Potgieter, 18 Dylon Pieterse, 19 Luke van der Smit, 20 Brandon Brown, 21 Lungelo Goza, 22 Ganfried May.
