The FNB UFS Young Guns side showed visitors Wits no mercy in their 122-0 demolition of the Johannesburg side in Bloemfontein on Monday.

Following a narrow opening defeat to defending champions UP-Tuks last week, the Free State side bounced back in impressive style to completely blow Wits away.

They scored 15 tries in total, with flyhalf Warren Potgieter slotting 14 conversions to complete the rout against a stunned Wits outfit.

The tries were fairly evenly spread throughout the squad, with six players grabbing two tries each in what was serious one-way traffic from start to finish.

The home side took control of the game from the outset and were ruthless in the first half as they racked up an imposing 58-0 lead by the half-time break.

It was more of the same in the second half, with Wits not allowed so much as a sniff and the UFS side crossing the tryline regularly.

The visitors simply had no response, and their opponents did not let up, with their last try coming right on the final whistle to give their points difference a major boost.
