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.
