Four penalties from Whitehead gave the home side a 12-8 lead at halftime, with the Eagles scoring the only try of the opening stanza through winger Alshaun Bock.
The Kings came out firing after the break, scoring three tries in rapid succession – to fullback SP Marais and flankers Wimpie van der Walt and Cornell du Preez – to build up a 23-point lead and effectively kill off the game with half an hour remaining.
Whitehead got in on the action with the bonus-point try, while the Eagles had to be satisfied with a consolation score by replacement Deroy Rhoode.
