THE EP Kings under-21 team will be looking to maintain their unbeaten record in the Currie Cup B Division when they travel to Groblersdal to play the Limpopo Blue Bulls on Saturday.
Thanks to a dazzling performance when they thrashed the Falcons 87-17 at Nelson Mandela Bay on Friday, the Kings are top of the B Division table with 30 points after six outings.
The Limpopo Bulls are second with 26 points from the same number of games, and a hard-fought clash is on the cards.
At the start of the season, Kings director of rugby Matt Sexton said it was vital there were some "goodnews stories" for EP rugby this season.
"We want to gain some silverware and ensure that our U19 and U21 teams are promoted to the top division. We want to finish our season on a high," he said.
The Kings U21 team have been boosted by the appearance of former Southern Kings Super Rugby players Shane Gates and Siviwe Soyizwapi, who both scored tries against the outclassed Falcons.
While the Kings U21 are flying high, the Kings U19 lost some ground when they slipped to a 41-39 defeat against the Falcons, which left them third on the latest log.
After six matches the Kings trail the log-leading Falcons by 11 points.
They are third on the log with 19 points behind pace-setters Falcons (30) and Boland (24).
The try feast for the Kings U21 team was led by Eben Barnard, Siphesihle Punguzwa, Siviwe Soyizwapi and Sonwabo Majola, who each scored two tries.
In addition, Shane Gates, Siphumelele Msutwana, Sonkosi Kuhle, Wayven Smith and Yakha Qinela all scored tries.
Accurate Ruan Allerston succeeded with eight conversions and Gavin Hauptfleisch slotted three.
The U19 Kings players who got on the scoreboard when their team lost 41-39 to the Falcons, were Alex Banfield, Juandre Fourie, Kevin Kaba and Matthew Moore, who scored a try apiece.
The kicking duties fell to Selvyn Davids (four conversions), Juandre Fourie (one conversion), Davids (two penalties) and Warren Swarts (one penalty).
The Kings U19 team will be looking to make a strong finish to their season on Saturday against the third-from-bottom Limpopo Bulls.
