Junior Boks to face France in bronze medal play-off

The Junior Springboks will say “arrivederci” after tonight’s final whistle, when they take the field in their final outing at this year’s World Rugby Under-20 Championship in Cremona Italy.

The Junior Springboks will face France, after a disappointing semi-final result against England earlier in the week, in the bronze medal 3rd place play-off tonight.

Coach Dawie Theron has made a few changes upfront and one amongst the backs. Mzamo Majola, Jan van der Merwe, Jacques Vermeulen and Dan du Preez are the changes upfront, with backline player Malcolm Jaer the only other change in the starting XV.

“There is no hiding from the fact that the result against England was a huge disappointment. However, we will take that as a motivation to finish the tournament hopefully on a positive note with a win in our last match.

“Overall we had a good time together as a squad. We grew as a close knit unit during our extensive training camp in Stellenbosch, the Argentina tour right and the past three weeks here at the tournament in Italy. We have one match left to do our country proud and we are highly motivated to play France on Saturday,” explained captain, Hanro Liebenberg.

Kick-off is at 18:30, and the match will be televised live on SuperSport.
