A RUTHLESS Progress side thrashed Brumbies 103-5 in their Grand Challenge Top Seven rugby encounter in Uitenhage at the weekend.
The home side walked all over the Grahamstown side, crossing the line almost at will.

Progress doubled their efforts in the second half as they continued to dominate the encounter. Brumbies managed just one consolation try.

The second half started as the first ended with Despatch on the offensive, adding 19 more points.
