Travelling Kings suffer injury blow
INJURY UPDATE: Seasoned Kings centre Waylon Murray has been withdrawn from the touring squad in Australia.
Murray suffered an injury at training ahead of the side's Super Rugby encounter with the Western Force in Perth on Sunday.
The 30-year-old centre, who had started in all five of the Southern Kings' Super Rugby matches played so far, sustained a hamstring injury to his left leg during training in Perth on Tuesday.
Murray will be travelling back home to South Africa on Thursday, where he will undergo further scans on the left hamstring in Port Elizabeth.
Kings coach Deon Davids has called in former South Africa Under-20 player Wandile Mjekevu as a replacement for the injured Murray.
The 26-year-old Mjekevu was kept out of action from the start of the 2017 Super Rugby campaign with a foot injury which he successfully overcame.
Mjekevu arrives in Perth to join the rest of the Southern Kings squad on Wednesday.
Mjekevu will join Berton Klaasen and Luzuko Vulindlu as options when Davids selects his team to take on Western Force on Sunday.
