The Southern Kings rugby team flew into Port Elizabeth on Sunday to a warm welcome following their credible performances overseas. The Kings have been on tour for four weeks in New Zealand and Australia.
The Super Rugby debutants this weekend secured a dramatic victory over the Melbourne Rebels.
The Brumbies have moved to the top of the log after the weekend’s win and the Chiefs’ loss while the Crusaders were shocked by the 12th placed Western Force.
The Sharks lead at the top of the SA conference by three points with Cheetahs second while both teams lost out this weekend. The Stormers secured only their third win of seven matches.
Despite a delayed flight the Kings came home to what can only be described as a royal welcome as hundreds of fans were at the airport to catch a glimpse of their favourite players.
The next hurdle for the Kings will be their match against the Bulls on Saturday in Port Elizabeth.
