The easier games are out of the way and the Junior Springboks have come away with two good wins.

In both matches they had to work hard in the first half to give them the freedom to pile up the points in the second match but they have now the New Zealanders in front of them.

They beat Georgia on Saturday 48-20 to go unbeaten so far in the competition.

With the win they earned another bonus point which may play a vital role in the desire to reach the playoffs.

The first half was a struggle with both teams throwing the kitchen sink at each other in the quest to get points on the board.

With that came handling errors which made it a real stop start affair.

The Junior Boks did go in the break with a 21-5 lead but will have to play much better when they face New Zealand on Wednesday.

The second half was much better for the Junior Boks and they scored five tries to pull away from the Georgians.

Scorers:

Junior Springboks 48 (21)

Tries: Dylan Richardson (2), Asenathi Ntlabakanye, Fezokuhle Mbatha, Rikus Pretorius, Thaakir Abrahams, Angelo Davids, David Coetzer
