In the Eastern Cape derby, visitors the Border Bulldogs were no match for their Southern Kings partners the Eastern Province Kings, who ran in eight tries at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.
In reply, the Bulldogs, who remain rooted to the foot of the table without a win from their four outings, could manage just a single try from hard-working skipper Gareth Krause. But this was the Kings’ night as they moved to the top of the table, ahead of the unbeaten Griffons on points difference.
The platform for victory was laid by the Kings’ impressive forward pack, who completely dominated their opponents at the set pieces as well as in the tight loose.
The result was a brace of tries to each of eighthman Luke Watson and lock Wayne van Heerden, while Varsity Cup-winning flyhalf Wesley Dunlop kicked 14 points.
Final Score EP Kings (21) 56 Border Bulldogs (5) 5
