The South African Under 20 side chalked up victory against Tonga by 40-points to 14 in their opening IRB Junior World Championship game in Argentina on Saturday evening. Sharks fullback Patrick Lambie did most of the damage, scoring one of four tries and succeeding with all 8 attempts at goal.

Despite almost total dominance for most of the first-half, the Baby Boks only managed to score a single try through Bulls winger Sampie Mastriet, thanks in no small part to their opponents’ continual infringements on defence. Lambie showed no hesitation in stroking over the penalties as they came, though and by the time captain CJ Stander crashed over for the second try late in the first period, the South Africans lead by 26 points to 3.

Further tries by centre Francois Venter and Lambie himself put the result beyond doubt, despite some poor tackling letting the Tongans in for a try late in the game. The Baby Bok pack, featuring more Sharks players in hooker Monde Hadebe and locks Kene Okafor and Peet Marais, played well throughout and layed the platform for victory, with halfbacks Louis Schreuder and Elton Jantjes running riot with a surfeit of good ball. Lambie scored 25 points in the final analysis, through a try, four penalties and four conversion.

Two other Sharks in the squad, wing Sbu Sithole and loose forward Tera Mthembu, were forced to sit out the opening game as a result of niggles, but should come into the frame for selection against Scotland in the second game.

  • Super stoked that Lambie is doing this well. I’m glad they didn’t put him in the Bok squad prematurely, surely this is the better way for him to prove how talented he is.

    I say give him an extended full back run in the Currie Cup, and lets see if he can make the Bok squad after the World Cup. Because once that youngster is in the team, he will be hard to replace.

    Cheers Richard.

    I watched the U20 England game. I thought they looked awesome. Lambie and co will have their work cut out against them. Alot of Premiership experience in the backs.

    Did not see the NZ er’s !

  • @Hertford Highlander (Comment 5) : I didn’t know we had coverage of these games! And how exactly does it work, do they play in pools? If so, who else are we playing and when are we playing again?

    I hope Lambo can prove that he can stand up to the other big nations..

  • I hope they have a qualified legal team dedicated to Lambie`s contract . . . Not the guy who dealt with Frans Steyn and Butch`s contracts please!!!!

  • @wpw (Comment 2) :
    Forget it
    As long as the Storners have a fit Jantjes in the equation no other fullback is going to get starting game time, and if it does happen it will be to shift Aplon to the back.
