The UP-Tuks Under-20 team recorded a whopping 146-0 win over TUT's Under-20s, announcing themselves up as one of the favourites in the all-new Varsity Young Guns competition.
The battle between the two Pretoria sides could not have been any more one-sided and the Tuks men dominated from beginning to end.
While the TUT youngsters tackled bravely, they were outclassed in every facet of the game and will need to take a good hard look at themselves.
However, Tuks, with a host of star players at their disposal - including SA Under-20 wing Travis Ismaiel who scored four tries, must be one of the favourites following this hiding and will be tough to beat.
