Cape Town - UJ made light work of a rather poor UCT side as they smashed the Cape Town outfit 63-0 at Cape Town Stadium on Monday afternoon.

It was all UJ from the very beginning as they scored five first half tries through David Antonites, Aphiwe Dyantyi, Robert de Bruyn and Johannes Snyman (2) to lead 37-0 at the break.

UCT made it difficult for themselves as flanker, Olwethu Hans, was sin binned within the first 20 minutes. This gave UJ the advantage at a windy Cape Town Stadium, a factor they used to perfection in the first half.

UCT however, failed to use their second half wind advantage as UJ continued their rampage.

UCT had no answer to UJ’s attack and failed to execute their possession. Replacement lock, Jeremy Jordan, outside centre Bradley Moolman and a second try by Dyantyi saw the Johannesburg close out the match 63-0,  a result that will definitely worry the UCT management.
