Benetton were far too good for intra-country rivals Zebre Parma as they secured a dominant 39-14 triumph at the Stadio Sergio Lanfranchi on Friday.

The visitors completely controlled the match and went into the break in a commanding position. They moved 24-0 ahead thanks to tries from Federico Ruzza, Giovanni Pettinelli and Tommaso Menoncello.

Benetton then touched down twice more in the second half as Juan Ignacio Brex and Leonardo Marin went over to complete an easy win.

Tommaso Boni and Giulio Bisegni did cross the whitewash for the hosts in the final quarter but it was another disappointing URC performance from Michael Bradley’s men.

Zebre have not won a match in the competition since beating the Dragons at home in February, while the result is Benetton’s first win on the road since their last trip to Parma in May.
