They fielded three foreign players in the 35-24 defeat to the defending champions in Port Elizabeth, contrary to South African Rugby regulations that allow for two foreigners per match squad.
The Kings started with New Zealand centre Hadleigh Parkes and used the Argentine scrum-half Nicolas Vergallo and flank Tomas Leonardi as replacements.
Leonardi was drafted on to the bench when lock Darron Nell pulled a calf muscle in the pre-match warm-up.
