Worcester taught Spanish newboys Gernika a severe lesson with a thumping 85-5 success in their Amlin Challenge Cup Pool Two opener.

This was Spain's champions' European debut, but it turned into a nightmare as the Warriors crossed the tryline 13 times.

Gernika wing Toto Mazzochi scored on the hour mark, but the joy was short-lived as Richard Hill's side ran riot in this one-way contest.

Replacement Max Stelling grabbed a six-minute hat-trick late on, wing Andy Short and scrum-half Paul Hodgson scored try doubles while No 10 Joe Carlisle bagged 25 points with a try and 10 conversions.

Yet the challenge in weeks ahead will be tougher for Worcester, who take on Perpignan next weekend.

The French giants thrashed Rovigo in a 10 try 79-12 romp at the Stadio Mario Battaglini.
