The home side have won just once – from five matches – this season and will fancy their chances against the men from Port Elizabeth who have exactly the same record so far.
But despite their poor record, the Force have been very competitive in most of their fixtures this year and apart from their Round Two win over the Reds in Perth, they impressed in defeats to the Waratahs, Brumbies and Blues.
The one exception to that statistic, however, was against the Crusaders in Round 5 when the seven-time champions blew Dave Wessels’ charges off the park on their way to a 45-17 win.
Both these sides will be highly motivated to prove their worth after they were mentioned as teams who are amongst the favourites to be axed from the tournament if SANZAAR decide to reduce the number of teams to 15 next year.
One player who is raring to go is Force skipper Ben McCalman who is set to play his first match of the season after recovering from a thumb injury.
The Wallaby back-row believes his side can win this weekend but expects a tough challenge.
“You don’t often talk about games you want to win or feel you have to win, but I feel this is a game we can target, mainly because it’s at home,” he told the West Australian.
“The Kings are a very physical side. There are a lot of forced turnovers when they play.
“They haven’t had the results but they force teams to play a style of rugby or the game plan they don’t want to play.”
Although the Kings are South Africa’s poorest performing franchise in recent years and generally regarded as whipping boys in the tournament, they will be quietly confident as they head into this fixture as they have a good track record against Australian sides.
Though they’ve not faced an Australian team since 2013, the Kings have lost just one of their four previous meetings with teams from that country – winning two and drawing one of those fixtures.
The Kings were dealt a blow earlier in the week when former Springbok centre Waylon Murray returned to Port Elizabeth after being ruled out of the rest of their Australian tour with a hamstring injury.
