The Vodacom Blue Bulls started the defence of their Absa Under-19 Provincial Championship on a positive note on Friday by beating EP Kings 29-17 at Loftus Versfeld. The Vodacom Blue Bulls Under-19s took early command of the match and never looked back.
Three tries in the first 20 minutes laid the foundation to the bonus-point win. The EP Kings came back well in the second half of the match, but after that early blow there was only going to be one winner in the match.

EP Kings 17 (10). Tries: CJ Velleman, Tyler Paul. Conversions: Jason Vers, Kewan Gibb. Penalty: Vers.
