Preview: U20 Championship, Finals

Sat, 17 Jun 2017 10:51

UNDER-20 CHAMPIONSHIP SPOTLIGHT: The two most successful teams in Under-20 Championships history,  New Zealand and England will contest the 2017 Championship final on Sunday, June 18.

Since the start of the tournament in 2008, the two sides have won eight titles between them, five for New Zealand and three for England.

Both teams are unbeaten thus far, which provide a platform for an enthralling final.

Defending champions England won all their pool matches and reached their fifth successive final after a titanic battle with the Junior Springboks in the first semifinal, one only settled when captain Zach Mercer went over for his second try with four minutes to go to secure his side a 24-22 victory.

New Zealand, the five-time champions who have won all of their previous meetings with England in the title decider, survived France's second-half comeback with a 39-26 victory.

England U20 head coach Ian Vass praised his side's achievements and stated that their rough road to the final has prepared the side well for the inform New Zealand team.

"We have had a tougher route to the final than New Zealand however tight games bring the best out of the players and the team, and we have shown how to come out on top," said Vass.

"Throughout the competition we haven’t put too much pressure on winning and it has been learning as a group.

"Each team we play has different strengths and the team we have picked will give us the best opportunity of winning. It would be fantastic achievement for the players to lift the trophy on Sunday and they are all excited to get on the field," he added.

In the third-place play-off, South Africa will take on France. The two sides played to a 23-all draw in their opening fixture of the round robin phase. The hero of that match, Curwin Bosch misses the third-place fixture due to an ankle injury. Manie Libbok dons the number 10 jumper, while  Jeanluc Cilliers starts at fullback.

Zain Davids returns and will start in the loose trio with Junior Bok captain Ernst van Rhyn and No 8 Juarno Augustus after serving his suspension.

The Junior Springboks head coach Chean Roux is expecting a physical onslaught from France, who finished as the runners-up in the U20 Six Nations competition earlier this season, and said the first quarter would be vital.

"I think they are going to try to slow the game down and they will want to come hard at us in the scrums and lineouts," said Roux.

"Knowing the French, the first 20 minutes are going to be crucial as that is where the foundation will be laid. So we have to come out guns blazing and apply pressure on them as quickly as possible,"

Scotland will face Australia for fifth-place before Wales meet Italy in the seventh-place play-off.

Samoa tackle Argentina in the 11th place play-off at Avchala Stadium with the loser relegated to the U20 Trophy in 2018.

Ireland v Georgia (13.00)
Scotland v Australia (14.30)

Baby Blacks power to U20 title

Sun, 18 Jun 2017 16:41

WORLD U20 CHAMPIONSHIP REPORT: New Zealand's Under-20s reclaimed the World Under 20 Championship title with a powerful dissembling of England in a one-sided Final which resulted in a record 64-17 scoreline.

The 10 tries to three win was redemption for the side which was eliminated in pool play in 2016 and a triumph for captain and flank Luke Jacobson while hooker Asafo Aumua capped a superb tournament with a hat-trick of tries before injury forced him from the field.

But it was a team effort with outstanding contributions across a team which stamped its authority almost from the kick-off to start the game.

Jacobson said the side had put in a lot of work since November and he was 'stoked' to win the tournament. There had been a lot of chat after they had eased up in the second half of the semi-final against France so they were determined to put their foot on England's throat in the final.

He followed his brother Mitchell onto the winners' rostrum from two years ago and said looking at his brother's medal had been an inspiration for him.

The side suffered no loss of momentum with the enforced replacement of concussed flyhalf Tiaan Falcon after the French semi-final. Stephen Perofeta was flown in from New Zealand - where he was part of the Blues team who beat the British & Irish Lions - and had his own reward having said at the start of the season that he had some unfinished business at the U20 tournament after last year's disappointment.

It was his final conversion of seven that broke the highest score of 62 points scored by New Zealand against Australia in 2010.

England went into the game with the reputation for its forward pack but twice in the first five minutes it was the New Zealand forwards who showed they were ready for the challenge. From a tighthead out from England's 22, scrumhalf Ereatara Enari ran the ball blind and the ball moved through four phases before flank Dalton Papali'i picked up the ball and dived over the ruck for the first try.

From the restart Perofeta broke from his own 22 and raced 70 metres downfield.

His decision to continue alone saw the ball lost in the tackle but while England won the scrum, the ball was turned over and lock Isaia Walker-Leawere charged ahead. Moving the ball left, wing Caleb Clarke made a strong run before feeding inside to Aumua. From the ruck prop Pouri Rakete-Stones picked up the ball at speed and pushed through a gap for a ninth-minute try.

New Zealand mistakes, and penalties, failed them and allowed England back into the game after flank Ben Earls - who was one of the best of his side - made a strong run infield into the New Zealand 22. 

Several rucks followed before flyhalf Max Malins, who had missed a penalty goal attempt from straight in front, held the ball up before releasing it to Earls who ploughed into a gap and straight ahead for a try.

England had a lucky break after an Enari blindside break allowed wing Tima Faingaanuku a run down the line but the ball was ripped from his grasp just short of the goal-line. Conceding a penalty from the scrum, New Zealand then held England scrumhalf Harry Randall up in a maul to win a turnover.

Moving the ball from the scrum, New Zealand fullback Will Jordan ran into the line and through a gap to pass the ball to hooker Asafo Aumua who barged through the defence to score in the 25th minute.

Just after the restart England kicked downfield to Jordan who took the ball unchallenged, straightened the play and set off downfield where Aumua was there in support. Papali'i was on hand to carry play to the line and it was Walker-Leawere who crossed in the 28th minute.

A lengthy break while and England hooker Joe Mullis was taken from the ground did not stop the New Zealanders, who finished the half with two tries in three minutes, both of them involving bullocking runs by Clarke on the left. 

From the first it was Auvua who scored a second try and then after Clarke claimed a downfield kick by inside centre Orbyn Leger. He almost reached the goal-line before he was halted, but not before feeding captain and flank Jacobson over as New Zealand completed the half with 40 points in 40 minutes.

In scoring the try, Clarke looked to take a blow to his head and he was replaced at half-time by Josh McKay, who celebrated by making full use of another Aumua break to score the opening try of the second half.

New Zealand lost shape and the sin-binning of prop Ezekiel Lindenmuth for an unnecessary late and high shot on prop Ralph Adams-Hale and England responded with a try to replacement scrumha;lf Alex Mitchell.

But when restored to full strength, Aumua - in his final act of his game - capitalised on a turnover worked by Jordan off an England midfield play. Taking the ball up high 15 metres out from England's line, Aumua beat four defenders and then cork-screwed his way over the line to complete his hat-trick of tries.

There was more to come with turnovers which saw replacement flank Tom Christie and Jacobson score before the end.
