The Waratahs ran in 11 tries as they trounced the Southern Kings 72-10 at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth on Saturday.

The visitors dominated from start to finish, charging to a 46-10 lead at half-time and then adding 26 unanswered points in the second period.

The 'Tahs had the four-try bonus point secured inside the first 20 minutes and had touched down seven times - including a hat-trick from winger Cam Crawford - by the interval.

Peter Betham notched a brace of tries in the visitors' victory, while other try-scorers were Israel Folau, Kane Douglas, Michael Hooper, David Dennis and substitutes Ben Volavola and Tom Kingston late on.

Brendan McKibbin kicked a penalty and five conversions before his replacement Matt Lucas added two more conversions in the one-sided affair.

The hosts' only reply came just before the break from teenage wing Sergeal Petersen, while Demetri Catrakilis added a conversion and a penalty.

The result sees the 'Tahs climb into the top half of the overall standings while the Kings are left just one point clear on the Highlanders - whom they face next week - at the foot of the table.
