Edinburgh was too good for the ill-discipline Southern Kings on Saturday beating them 61-13 at Murrayfield.

With a red card in the 14th minute of the game the Kings were never going to be able to compete against the Scottish outfit.

Pieter Scholtz received a red  for making contact with an opponents neck while he was carrying the ball.

They also had to do without replacement prop, De-Jay Terblance who got injured which left them having to play with only 13 men.

As if that was not enough bad luck the men from PE saw Fortuin getting a yellow card in the 67th minute which saw them playing with only 12 men.

This gave Edinburgh so much freedom to play and they scored nine tries at the end of the match.

The Kings played well in the first half even though the only had 14 men on the field and trail only 19-13 at the break.

With both teams running at each other it made for an exciting first forty minutes.

The second half there was only one team on the field.


Edinburgh 61 (19) – Tries: Mike Willemse, Duhan van der Merwe, Matt Scott, James Johnstone, Penalty Try, Eroni Sau, Dave Cherry, Charlie Shiel, Mark Bennett. Conversions: Jaco van der Walt (7).
