Border make Kings sweat
- 04 Feb 2017
The Southern Kings scored four tries to beat the Border Bulldogs 28-10 in a pre-season friendly in East London on Saturday.
It took the Kings just four minutes to open the scoring, when fullback Malcolm Jaer scored a converted try, but that's the way it stayed until half-time.
Border scored their first try early in the second half through No 8 Lukhanyo Siyobi, before Kings flanks Andisa Ntsila and Onke Dubase were yellow-carded.
It was the visitors who scored next, though, with scrumhalf Johan Steyn crossing the line in the 60th minute.
Kings wing Makazole Mapimpi's 68th-minute try gave his side a 21-5 lead, before Sonwabise Mqalo scored Border's second try.
The Kings had the last say, when prop Justin Forwood scored their fourth try with a minute to go.
Kings – Tries: Malcolm Jaer, Johan Steyn, Makazole Mapimpi, Justin Forwood. Conversions: Ntabeni Dukisa, Garrick Mattheus (3).
Bulldogs – Tries: Lukhanyo Siyobi, Sonwabise Mqalo.

‘All Blacks murdered Boks’
What NICK MALLETT had to say on SuperSport about the Springboks' humiliating 57-0 defeat against the All Blacks in Albany.
Bok coaches in deep denial
Allister Coetzee and Brendan Venter's comments since the Springboks' record 57-0 loss to the All Blacks are as concerning as the performance itself, writes SIMON BORCHARDT.
No defence for shameful Bok showing
The Springbok coaching team, as well as the players must be held accountable for the worst Test performance in South African rugby history, writes JON CARDINELLI.
