Luke Whitelock scoring for New Zealand against Wales

The next Whitelock: Try for Luke

New Zealand delivered a warning to their Junior World Championship rivals by demolishing Wales 92-0 at Stadio Mario Battaglini on Tuesday.

Fourteen tries were scored in all by the nation wearing black in Rovigo as they only just came up shy of the century, winning well in the sunshine.

It took a mere 56 seconds for flanker Sam Cane to open the scoring and the tries came thick and fast after that with seven touchdowns in the first half alone, leaving Welsh manager and former international Mark Taylor to admit at half-time that his side were "a little bit shell-shocked".

There were also wins for England and Australia in the opening matches on day two. England ran out 39-18 winners over Scotland, Christian Wade grabbing the headlines with a hat-trick in the win over the Auld Enemy at the Stadio Comunale di Monigo in Treviso.

Australia, meanwhile, topped half a century for the second match in a row, this time running out 50-25 winners over Fiji in Pool B. Eddie Bredenhann, captain Michael Hooper, Jarrad Butler, Ted Postal, Damon Anderson, Siliva Siliva, Jacob Woodhouse and Blake Enever all scored in Padova.

Francois Venter scored a brace of tries for the second match in a row as South Africa beat Ireland 35-19 in Treviso to set up a Pool C decider with England on Saturday. Wing Wandile Mjekevu and second row Eben Etzebeth also got in on the try-scoring act for the Baby Boks.

Hosts Italy suffered a second defeat in as many games on their return to the Junior World Championship stage, this time losing 27-3 to Argentina in their Pool A match. In Pool B's other game, France beat Tonga 27-14 with four tries keeping them a point behind Australia.

With thanks to the IRB
