Kings 6 Bulls 38

A comprehensive victory for the visitors as they scored six tries. 

09 Apr 21:08
80' - The hooter sounds but the Bulls have one final scrum feed around 20m from the Kings line. 
09 Apr 21:04
77' - Can the Kings get a consolation try? Jaer is trying his best and looks their most dangerous attacker but the Bulls have him covered. 
09 Apr 21:01

73' - TRY to the Bulls!

SP Marais has his second of the evening. He kicks ahead when he probably should have passed but the Kings defence can't secure the ball, allowing the fullback to pick up and score. 

Brummer converts.

They really haven't taken their chances tonight. 

09 Apr 20:54

68' - TMO called into action to check the tackle on Jaer

The Kings will get a penalty as the TMO has ruled he was tackled before he could collect the ball.

Seemed like a tough call to be honest. The Kings set up an attacking 5m lineout.

63' - Play quickly moves up the other end of the field as the Bulls move onto the attack. 
09 Apr 20:45

09 Apr 20:43
59' - The Bulls backs are full of running now, moving the ball at every opportunity. Unfortunately, the visitors keep on giving away penalties at the ruck. Fouche clears into the Bulls half.

Ferreira can be credit with all the hard work for the Kings.

09 Apr 20:22
40' - Second half underway in Port Elizabeth. 
09 Apr 20:11


The Bulls 13 man defence holds out. They will still have to play a few minutes in the second half two men down.

09 Apr 20:09

40' +8 - Brilliant defence by the Bulls as Ismaiel manages to hold Visser up!

09 Apr 20:07
40' +8 - Visser held up over the line. Did he get it down? The TMO will have a look. 
09 Apr 20:05

40' +6 - YELLOW CARD to the Bulls!

Marcel vd Merwe will join Snyman in the bin.

09 Apr 20:05
