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.
