Click here to Watch Golden Lions v Eastern Province Kings Live Saturday 5th September 17:10 GMT
The Golden Lions who can boast a 100% winning record, as well as a perfect 20 points out of a possible 20 from their first four matches in the 2015 Currie Cup, will expect to extend that record for at least another week, as they take on the struggling Eastern Province Kings on Saturday. The Lions have already played the Kings once this season, coming away from Port Elizabeth with a crushing 51-14 victory to their name. While that is the highest score and biggest margin of victory during the current campaign, they have not been short of other emphatic successes.
They have twice scored 40+ points against the Pumas, and 30+ away to the Sharks. With the 31-16 win in that game, being their closest result to date. The Eastern Province Kings are winless after four rounds of competition, and are only avoiding bottom spot on the table, due to the fact that they have collected two bonus points, while the Griquas have managed just one.
Although the Kings have had chances in their past two matches to open their account for the season, both were at home and were against sides only just above them on the ladder, the Pumas and Sharks. The Lions are currently neck and neck at the head of the table with the Blue Bulls, as the regular season approaches the halfway point, and they will not want to lose any ground this week, with a visit to Loftus to play the Bulls due in Round 6.
