As it happened: Waratahs 24-26 Kings
Thanks for tuning in!
The Kings, playing with their Super Rugby future under of a cloud of uncertainty, picked up four points for their victory, but remained bottom of the African Conference 2.
The Waratahs, whose form in 2017 has plummeted to new lows, left with a single point for losing by seven or fewer points, but remained fourth in the Australian Conference with a meagre nine points from as many matches.
In next weekend's Round 10 action, the Waratahs travel to Brisbane to face the Reds (Saturday, April 29 at 11:45), while the Kings welcome the Rebels to Port Elizabeth later in the day (19:30).
Have enjoyed the swagger and spirit of this Kings team. Have played with as much intelligence as physicality. Deserved win today #WARvKIN— Jon Cardinelli (@jon_cardinelli) April 21, 2017
A great way for the Kings to end their overseas tour! They thoroughly deserved their win.
The Kings scrum was dominant, while flank Chris Cloete was immense!
82'- TRY to the Waratahs as big winger Taqele Naiyaravoro goes over in the corner for his second try to earn the hosts a losing bonus point.
78'- The hapless Waratahs have a scrum just inside Kings territory.
But the game is over, the 'Tahs are done...
Sou Chris Cloete al 'n Bok wees as hy vir 'n ander provinsie gespeel het? Geen wonder Rassie 'rate' die kêrel nie. Hy speel vir 160 minute??— Hendrik Cronjé (@hendrikcronje71) April 21, 2017
Schalk van der Merwe has been massive since coming on. Now 17-26 and Kings will win this ... GSP will be scarce!!— Front Row Grunt (@FrontRowGrunt) April 21, 2017
76'- PENALTY TRY to the Kings after another dominant scrum!
Waratahs 17-26 Kings
Third game of the overseas tour and the Kings forwards still manage to put in a big shift. Waratahs woeful though #WARvKIN— Jon Cardinelli (@jon_cardinelli) April 21, 2017
75'- A massive Kings scrum sees them win another penalty in that department. It's there where they have laid the foundation for this fightback!
They opt to scrum again.
