Jaer hat-trick can't save Kings

    2017-04-09 09:52

    Cape Town - The Force have beaten the Kings 46-41 in a 12-try Vodacom Super Rugby thriller played in Perth. 

    As it happened: Force v Kings

    In a match in which the lead changed numerous times, a controversial penalty try in the 72nd victory put the Force in the lead by a single point. They soon extended that lead through a try by Ben McCalman, knocking the wind out of the visitors sails in the process. 

    Both sides crossed the whitewash on no fewer than six occasions with Jono Lance, Alex Newsome (2) and Dane Haylett-Petty adding to the penalty try and McCalman's effort for the Force. Lance added two conversions and two penalties while Ian Prior also slotted two conversions.

    The Kings tries came through Justin Forwood, Yaw Penxe, Malcolm Jaer (3) and Makazole Mapimpi. Lionel Cronje converted four while Pieter-Steyn De Wet added a penalty. 

    In next weekend's Rund 8 action, the Kings face the Reds in Brisbane (Saturday, APril 15 at 11:45), while the Force have a bye.
