The EP Kings left for Bloemfontein with high hopes for their promotion relegation game against the Cheetahs.
The Cheetahs then proceeded to rip the Kings apart by winning 53-14.
It certainly looks like the Kings hopes of ascending into the Premier Division are completely shattered as the Cheetahs scored 8 tries to EP Kings 2. Rubbing more salt in the wound is that one of the Cheetah tries was a penalty try in the 75th minute and the Kings Charl Du Plessis was sent off with a Yellow Card.
The Cheetahs opened the scoring in the 5th minute and were soon ahead with a half time score of 24-0.
The Kings only opened their account in the 47th minute with a try by Devin Oosthuizen, converted by George Whitehead.
To have any chance of going through to the Premier Division the Kings will have to score more tries than the Cheetahs and have a larger winning margin this coming Friday.
- Cheetahs: Conversions – Nico Scheepers (2), Tewis de Bruyn (3); Penalty – Tewis de Bruyn (1); Penalty Try – (1); Tries – Adriaan Strauss (1), Andries Strauss (2), Nico Scheepers (1), Philip Van der Walt (1), Rayno Benjamin (1), Ross Geldenhuys (1)
