SQUAD ANNOUNCEMENT: Yaw Penxe, the 19-year-old who made his Super Rugby debut against the Lions in Round Five of the competition, is getting ready to head to Australia for a three-week tour with the Kings.

Of the 23 players who did duty against the Lions, just two - Alshaun Bock and Stefan Willemse - will be left at home when the team departs on Saturday.

Bock made history earlier in the competition by becoming the oldest player to make his Super Rugby debut.

Makazole Mapimpi, who was a late withdrawal from the match against the Lions due to a thigh injury, has been given an all-clear and has been named in head coach Deon Davids' 27-man squad.

The tour to Australia includes matches against Force (April 9), Reds (April 15) and the Waratahs (April 21). The Kings will then return to Nelson Mandela Bay where they will take on the Rebels on Saturday, April 29.
 
Southern Kings squad:
 
Forwards: Chris Heiberg, Schalk van der Merwe, Dayan van der Westhuizen, Justin Forwood, Ross Geldenhuys, Kurt Haupt, Martin Bezuidenhout, Michael Willemse, Irne Herbst, Mzwanele Zito, Wilhelm van der Sluys, Andisa Ntsila, Chris Cloete, Ruaan Lerm, Tyler Paul.
Backs: Johan Steyn, Louis Schreuder, Ricky Schroeder, Lionel Cronje, Pieter-Steyn de Wet, Makazole Mapimpi, Yaw Penxe, Berton Klaasen, Waylon Murray, Malcolm Jaer, Luzuko Vulindlu, Masixole Banda.
