Broadcast times for all Junior RWC finals matches


Three weeks of supreme junior rugby will culminate with the “battle of the babies” as the South African under-20s look to halt the Baby Blacks’ four-year junior rugby dominance in the showpiece match of the 2012 IRB Junior World Championship on Friday evening.


The match is exclusively live on SuperSport and in High Definition.

New Zealand steamrolled all before them in the last four editions of the championship but could find the going a lot tougher this time, contesting the final against the host nation for the first time.

The final will be preceded by five playoff matches.

SuperSport is the host broadcaster of the 2012 IRB Junior World Championships.

  1. More than 30 000 tickets have been sold for the Junior World Championship final at Newlands – 8000 more than the previous record.
    Reason for playing on a Friday night,
    although it’s going to be cold and wet.


    Complainants W Botha and Hoërskool Alberton contended that a Jacaranda presenter had, during a broadcast, referred to a school rugby team from Alberton as “gomgatte”.
    (country bumpkins, or louts).

    Their complaint was dismissed by the commission’s tribunal, which found the comment was not defamatory.

    Presenter Rian van Heerden had commented on the head-butting of a referee by a player after a rugby match between Hoërskool Hans Strijdom and Hoërskool Alberton.

    “Rian commented that he did not expect such action from a player from Hans Strijdom, but rather from a player from Alberton,” the complaint read.

    Later in the programme he said: “Net gomgatte stamp met die kop” (only louts practice head-butting). Tribunal chairman Kobus van Rooyen found that the statements did not defame Alberton schoolboys.
    And calling them “knopgatte”?
