NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 21/08/2016

A ruthless Canterbury outfit have thrashed Auckland 43-3 in their Mitre 10 Cup opener in Christchurch on Saturday.

Tries to Richie Mo'unga, Ben Funnell, Reid Prinsep and a double to Johnny McNicholl settled the match for the hosts over a sluggish Auckland side.

The match was a repeat of last year's grand final, which Canterbury won 25-23.
