The South Africans scored nine tries, with good improvement in all phases of play as the match progressed.
Scotland took an early lead with a break-away try after ten minutes, but the Junior Springboks stayed calm and soon reaped rewards for their efforts as first Pierre Schoeman and then Sergeal Petersen crossed the try-line.
Both tries came from a call by captain Handre Pollard, to execute attacking set-plays rather than kicking for poles. The captain, who had a superb match, kicked both conversions to have his side up 14-5 at the break.
“We were not clinical enough in that first half,” the playmaker said afterwards.
“We made to many handling errors, but once the forwards laid the platform for us, the backs could express themselves in the second half,” the captain said.
Express they did in the second half as seven more tries followed.
Pollard started the spark with a great chip and chase that resulted in Lloyd Greeff scoring. More probing play by the flyhalf saw Jesse Kriel crossing the line to score the bonus-point try.
Not to be outdone by the backs, who suffered the loss of centre Andre Esterhuizen due to injury, the forwards rumbled well and kept to their plays and structure. Malcolm Marx scored after good interplay amongst the front row and Aidon Davis also got on the score sheet, but not before Warrick Gelant showed great pace down the blindside for his first JWC try.
A bunch of replacements did not stop the Junior Boks’ momentum and both Kriel and Greeff scored their second five pointers of the evening to cap off a great performance.
