Cape Town – The Kings will complete their encounters against Australian opposition on Saturday when they host the Waratahs in Port Elizabeth (17:05 kick-off).
The Super Rugby newcomers have not yet lost to an Aussie team this season, having beaten the Force at home, the Rebels away and sharing the spoils with the Brumbies in Canberra (they won’t face the Reds this year). They will therefore be looking to keep that record intact in what is the Waratahsâ€™ first visit to the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.
Furthermore, the Kings will be custodians of a South African win streak against the men from Sydney. The Waratahs have lost their last eight matches on the trot in South Africa, dating back to 15 May 2009, when they beat the Lions 38-33 in Johannesburg.
Overall, the Waratahs have won only 14 of their 38 matches in South Africa, or 36.8%.
The Kings will also be looking to get back on the try-scoring sheet this weekend, after going try-less in their last two matches. Theyâ€™ve scored at least two tries in each of their three matches against Aussie opposition this year.
