The finals of the 2012 IRB Junior World Championship will take place on Friday 22 June 2012. The day will see a number of matches happening, with the big final between South Africa and New Zealand scheduled for Newlands Rugby Stadium at 18h45.
After a shaky start, the Baby Boks have hit an impressive run of form with superb victories over England and more recently, Argentina, in the semi-finals of the competition. The team is well coached by Dawie Theron and a number of players have already made names for themselves in the tournament. Similarly, New Zealand also left their best for the latter rounds of the competition and they impressed many with their victory over a strong Wales team in the semi-finals. As with any New Zealand rugby team, they’ll be tough to beat.
