There were also comfortable wins for the Vodacom Bulls, who defeated the Toyota Free State by 73-17 in Pretoria, and the Cell C Sharks, who downed Eastern Province by a massive 102-6 in Durban.

DHL WP side scored 11 tries on a clear and breezy day to claim a bonus-point win and open up a six-point lead over the third-placed Cell C Sharks on the log. After the weekend's penultimate round of three matches, the young Capetonians have made certain of a place in the top two on the log after they managed to finishe their league commitments on 24 points from their six games.

That is two points more than the 22-point tally of the second-placed Vodacom Bulls. With the Cape side having already completed all their regulation games, the youngsters from Pretoria will most likely leap into the top spot when they travel to the Eastern Cape to face last-placed EP this coming weekend.

Although the Cell C Sharks managed to gain a runaway win over the winless EP side, they find themselves six points adrift of DHL WP and four points behind the Vodacom Bulls on 18 log points.

Last year's winners, the Lions, sit fourth on the league table after collecting 15 points from their three wins to date. They are followed by the Leopards (11 points), Free State (6 points) and EP, who are yet to register their first league points to date.

The final round of SA U20 Cup league fixtures will be played on Saturday, 9 April and the final will be staged on 16 April, with the top-placed team hosting the side who finished second on the log.
