South African side turned into paupers by red-hot Australian outfit.
The New South Wales Waratahs ran in 11 tries en route to a 72-10 humiliation of South African hosts Southern Kings in a Super 15 mismatch.
The Sydney side took just 19 minutes to secure a four-try bonus point at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth and led 46-10 at half-time.
Newcomers Kings entered the match hoping to maintain a good run against Australian teams having beaten Western Force in their debut match, and pipped Melbourne Rebels and held ACT Brumbies on tour.
But the men in black never stood a chance of extending the run as a Waratahs outfit upset at getting no points from an unlucky 11-point defeat by Northern Bulls at Loftus Versfeld last weekend took it out on the rookies.
The outcome could have been even worse for the outclassed Kings as three-try right wing Cam Crawford had another disallowed by the television match official and scrum-half Brendan McKibbin missed four of 10 shots at goal.
It was the biggest winning margin in the southern hemisphere rugby union championship this season, bettering the 64-7 hiding dished out by the South African Coastal Sharks to Australian visitors Melbourne Rebels in Durban.
Defeat for the Kings continued a dismal weekend for South African sides as Western Stormers lost to Auckland Blues and Sharks were beaten by the previously winless Otago Highlanders in New Zealand.
Crawford triggered the try avalanche before a small crowd at one of the 2010 FIFA World Cup venues and full-back Israel Folau also went over for a 12-0 lead before fly-half Demetri Catrakilis cut the deficit with a penalty.
But it was only a temporary reprieve for the South Africans as Crawford struck again before lock Kane Douglas collected the bonus-point try with just a quarter of the game completed.
Flank Michael Hooper, left wing Peter Betham and Crawford, for the third time, crossed the try-line and four McKibbin conversions had Waratahs 46-3 up before the Kings scored their lone try.
Flying teenage right wing Sergeal Petersen intercepted a pass from prop Benn Robinson and darted over for a spectacular touch down with Catrakilis converting to leave 36 points between the sides at the break.
The merciless Waratahs dropped a couple of gears in the second half, but still added four tries via skipper and flank Dave Dennis, Betham and replacement backs Ben Volavola and Tom Kingston.
McKibbin kicked one conversion and substitute Matt Lucas two as the Waratahs won for the fifth time in 10 outings and climbed three places to eighth while the Kings remained second last, a point above the Highlanders.
