The EP Kings ran in 10 tries as they thrashed a Blue Bulls XV 66-28 at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Friday.
While the Bulls travelled to Port Elizabeth without their Super Rugby players and Junior Boks, the result is sure to give the Kings a huge confidence boost ahead of their return to the Currie Cup Premier Division later this year.
The Kings will complete their run of friendlies against the Sharks on 4 July, before kicking off their Currie Cup Premier Division campaign in August.
