Cape Town - Leinster scored 10 tries as they thrashed the hapless Southern Kings 64-7 at the RDS Arena in Dublin on Friday night.

The defeat was the 16th consecutive one for the Kings in their debut PRO14 season which sees them remain rooted to the bottom of Conference B.

In perhaps the only good news for the Kings, their overseas commitments are now over and they return to South Africa to play their remaining five matches at home, starting with the Dragons at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Friday, March 2 at 19:35.
