This is the latest log as at 5 October after the Kings lost to the GWK Griquas 45 (14) EP Kings 25 (13):
Seven tries by GWK Griquas to only three by the EP Kings in their clash in Nelspruit steered the side to a convincing victory. The first half was tight as the hosts scored two tries, while the EP Kings were awarded a penalty try to add to two conversions by Gary Van Aswegen. This resulted in GWK Griquas taking a narrow 14-13 half-time lead.
But the flood gates opened for the home side in the second half as they found their rhythm and gaps in the defence, which allowed them to run in another five tries – three of which were scored in a strong nine-minute spell – which inflated their score significantly. In the process GWK Griquas flank Marnus Schoeman earned his hat-trick. In return the EP Kings scored two late consolation tries compliments of centre Shane Gates, which forced them to settle for a 45-25 defeat.
- GWK Griquas – Tries: Janro van Niekerk, Marnus Schoeman (3), Martin Bezuidenhout, PJ Vermeulen (2). Conversions: Dean Grant (3), Gouws Prinsloo (2).
- EP Kings – Tries: Shane Gates (2), Penalty Try. Conversion: Gary Van Aswegen, George Whitehead . Penalties: Gary Van Aswegen (2).
The final game for the EP Kings this season is against the Pumas on Friday 10 October 2014 with kickoff at 19h10 at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth.
