2 pre-season Southern Kings' fixtures for 2013 have been confirmed. The Kings will be taking on the Lions at Coca-Cola Park in Johannesburg on 9 February and 4 days later will be at home (Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium) against the Griquas on 13 February as they prepare for their inaugural Super Rugby campaign.
The match against the Griquas will be a mid-week (Wednesday night) game but there's no doubt the match against the Lions will get tongues wagging. The Kings replaced the Lions as South Africa's 5th franchise team that will partaking in the 2013 Super Rugby tournament. The match between the two teams should prove to be an entertaining affair: the Lions will have nothing to prove in the match whereas the Kings will be using the match to fine-tune their preparations for the Southern Hemisphere's prestigious regional rugby competition.
