Baby Boks and Kiwis reach Junior RWC final with crushing displays

The Baby Boks smashed Argentina and the Baby Blacks did the same to Wales

Sunday saw the Baby Boks and their Antipodean counterparts from New Zealand totally dominate world rugby as they crusghed their semi final opposition in the JUniot Rugby World Cup semi finals.

Baby Bokke take Argentina 35-3

The Baby Bokke put in a commanding first half display to go into the change room three tries to the good with no response. In the second half the rain bucketed down and the Baby Boks changed their game plan to a kicking tactical one based around a gritty defence. In the end the Argentinians with most of the possession in the second half could not cross the line whilst the Baby Boks managed another try.

Coach Dawie Theron lauded the defensive effort of his boys as well as their ability to switch styles of play when the rain started to affect the running game the Baby Boks used in the first half. Of worry though is the loss of super winger Paul Jordaan after he scored two tries in the first half.

Baby Blacks do a 30-6 against hapless Welsh

The Baby Blacks were grittily held until just before halftime when the floodgates opened and tries either side of the halves saw off a plucky Welsh challenge which waned as the game went on.

The Baby Blacks reach their fifth successive final and in a strange twist for the first time ever both finalists will have suffered group stage defeats. The Kiwis to Wales and the Baby Boks to Ireland.

Other game results

Ireland beat England 27-12, France beat Australia 19-17 in a thriller whilst Fiji and Italy must play off to see who gets relegated to the Junior World Cup Trophy in 2013 (a competition held in the USA from today).

The final will be on Friday evening 22 June in Newlands Stadium in Cape Town. Book your tickets and pile into the stadium fans! The Baby Bokkies will need support!

    Ruhle was very good as a replacement – scored two tries and very powerful in contact.
    Kiwis look beatable but it won’t be easy.

    :support:

    Agree, that Rhule lad is something special. He has great anticipation and his lines of attack were simply awesome. You cannot coach that sort of thing.

    Oh Lord who out in heaven let us beat this wannabe pretenders for once, please. I will be good for a while, I even might believe in you too.

    I am relieved Theron is finally getting his boois to play as they should. Dont need another Paul True. Great bloke, good coach but not enough balls to demand his players from the unions. Apparently Dawie went bat shit when they would not release players.

    Make us proud boois. :boks:

    Reply to Morné @ 9:58 am: He’s a Cheetah Morne and apparently an outside centre. That would explain the great lines he ran, definately looks at home on the wing…

    It is interesting that Dawie Theron picked 5 players originally outside centres:

    – Small-Smith
    – Jordaan
    – Howard
    – Mbovane (although he has spend the past 2 years at wing)
    – Rhule

    In this tournament, only Small-Smith was not played on the wing at some point
