Eastern Province Kings continued their 100% record in this seasons Currie Cup when they were beaten by the table topping Western Province at Newlands in Cape Town last weekend. They have now played five fixtures in the 2014 tournament, and have lost them all.

A 49-14 defeat, with seven tries conceded, came as the result of the unbeaten leaders literally running their visitors off their feet, after the early exchanges saw both sides using fairly aimless kicking ploys to try and gain some ascendancy.

On Friday at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, Port Elizabeth the Eastern Province Kings face a resurgent Blue Bulls, if one victory counts as resurgence. But last week at Loftus Versfeld, The Bulls downed the Golden Lions in a surprise, but deserved 36-26 victory.

Only their second win of the season, it keeps the Bulls in with a hope of being able to make the top four, and battle in the play-offs for the silverware.

It was a passionate performance from the misfiring Bulls, and a similar showing on Thursday in Nelspruit will almost certainly bring them another win against the bottom team.

When the sides met in Pretoria in Round 3, the teams shared six tries, and the Blue Bulls edged home by 30-25, the losing bonus point still being the Kings only reward to date this season.
