On Friday night the Eastern Province Kings played their second leg promotion relegation match against the Pumas in the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium. After drawing the first match away from home, the Kings and all their supporters felt that the team had a genuine chance of making it into the Currie Cup Premier Division. Unfortunately on the night it wasn't to be, the Kings were beaten and would have to play another year in the first division (which they won this year). The up side of the night was that there was a sell out crowd of 43 000 people, most wearing red and black, in the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium. That was more than the semi finals of the FIFA World Cup in Cape Town and Durban drew earlier in the year. It also shows that EP can draw a full house when they are playing well and hopefully next season will be a big one for the Kings.
