The FNB UP-Tuks Young Guns bulldozed over an inexperienced FNB Wits Young Guns side 114-0 on Monday.
The side from Pretoria were far too strong for the newcomers to the tounament as they ran in 15 tries, which included nine in the second half.
The Up-Tuks youngsters were held out by a spirited Wits side for the first ten minutes of the game but after that they could not contain the strength of the defending champions.
The hosts were helped by a near flawless kicking display from fullback Jacques Russouw as he kicked 13 kicks out of 15 attempts.
This UP-Tuks side are looking as formidable as ever and have sounded a warning to the rest of the sides that they are once again, the team to beat.
