The Eastern Province Kings are the Currie Cup First Division champions after beating the Pumas 26-25 in Port Elizabeth on Saturday.

A nail-biting victory was good enough to set up a two-match promotion-relegation series against the Free State Cheetahs in the next fortnight.

The newly-promoted Super Rugby franchise had tries scored by captain Darron Nell and Marcello Sampson while the Pumas replied with a couple of tries from Coenie van Wyk and one apiece from Jaco Bouwer and RW Kember but lost out to the kicking of Wesley Dunlop and George Whitehead.

Scorers:

EP Kings: Tries: Nell, Sampson Cons: Dunlop, Whitehead Pens: Whitehead 3, Dunlop

Pumas: Tries: C van Wyk 2, Bouwer, Kember Con: Olivier Pen: Roos
