The second round of SA Rugby U21 competition completed this past weekend with big wins for the Blue Bulls and Western Province.

The Cheetahs are the only side without a win so far this season after they went down against a rampant Blue Bulls side on Saturday.

The Blue Bulls are the only side with a perfect record and have show early on that they will be difficult to beat this season.

WP had to come back with a better performance after last week lost against the Blue Bulls and they did.

They were at home this weekend and easily beaten the Leopards on Saturday with 50-28.

Province scored 8 tries to the 4 of the Leopards on the day. Sam Phiri scored two tries in the match with Sihle Njezula, Lyle Hendricks, Abner Van Reenen, Gift Dlamini, Josh Muller and Marcel Theunissen crosses the line.

Abner Van Reenen was also successful with 5 conversions.

The points for the Leopards came from Sylvester Hassien, Reinard Jordaan, Chris Vermaak and Heinrich Botha got over the whitewash.

Andre Van Der Berg was successful 4 conversions.

The Sharks also comeback this weekend with their first win after the shocked lost against the Leopards last weekend.

They got the win over the Golden Lions at home 23-12 which was desperately needed to get back on track.

The Sharks had to comeback from from being 3-5 down at the break to get the win.

Both sides scored 2 tries each but it was the boot of Henry Chamberlain that made the difference for the Sharks.

Thaakir Abrahams scored both the Sharks tries on the day and Ruan Vermaak got the two tries for the visitors.

The Free State was totally outplayed on the day as a rampant Blue Bulls side smashed them 73-31 on Saturday.

This loss comes a week after the Golden Lions beat them 54-33.

The Blue Bulls crossed the Free State line 11 times and only gave 4 tries away to Free State.

JC Pretorius scored a hat-trick of tries with Cameron Hufke added two of his own.

The other tries for the Blue Bulls came from Werner Fourie, Muller Uys, Theo Boshoff, Diego Appollis, Lionel April and Sango Xamlashe.

Theo Boshoff added 9 conversions with the boot for the visitors.

For the Free State the tries came from Marthinus Boshoff, Darren Adonis, Ruhann Greyling and Conan Le Fleur.

Charles Williams were able to convert all four tries for Free State.

This leaves Free State at the bottom of the log and they will have to pick themselves up if they still want any say in this years competition.
