INJURY UPDATE: The Eastern Province Kings have a number of injury concerns to contend with after their 25-57 defeat to the Free State Cheetahs last weekend. 

Pieter-Steyn de Wet sustained a slight concussion and will be monitored according to protocol, while Dylan Pieterse sustained a wrist injury and he will have x-rays taken on Monday. 

Johan Greyling has injured his ankle and further tests will be done on Monday as well.

While some of the other players sustained light bumps and bruises, the team will rest for three days and resume their practice sessions on Thursday. The Kings have a bye in Round six.

Meanwhile, EP Kings captain Ricky Schroeder says the team is working hard despite the challenges they have been facing this season.

The Kings are still without a win in this year's Currie Cup Premier Division.

"We are never satisfied with a loss and there is no pressure from the management," Schroeder said.

"We want to win games as the team, we are working hard. At the end, we are showing that we can put up a contest.

"We had a mini Craven Week with games against the Western Province, Griquas and the Cheetahs in eight days but our guys stepped up. Week in week out, we are maybe not getting results but I must really emphasise how spirited we are at the camp."
