NZ v SA Junior RWC Semi-Final

New Zealand as a nation may be yet to lose a match in the history of the Junior World Championship, but Baby Blacks coach Dave Rennie is all too aware of the threat posed by South Africa’s Under 20s ahead of their semi final in Rosario.

The two sides, who have never met in the tournament before, have had vastly different journeys to this stage with a slightly older New Zealand side finishing top seed after comfortable wins against Fiji, Samoa and Wales in Pool A.

South Africa, on the other hand, made easy work of their Pool C matches against Tonga and Scotland but came out on the wrong end of an enthralling decider against Australia, losing 42-35 to qualify for the semi finals as the best placed runner up.

Clearly eager to match New Zealand’s pace out wide, South Africa coach Eric Sauls has made just two changes to the side that started against Australia with Branco du Preez, the shortest player in the tournament, coming in to the centre and Nico Scheepers getting his first call up on the wing.

New Zealand have made only three changes to the side that beat Wales 43-10 with prop Angus Taavao-Matau, number 8 Rory Grice and centre Star Timu getting starts. The biggest plus for Rennie, though, is that Julian Savea, the tournament’s leading try scorer with six, has recovered from a knock to his hip in the first half against Wales.

New Zealand coach Dave Rennie:
“South Africa pose a lot more problems for us. Obviously they have a very big pack and they’ve got a lot of wheels in the backs so you know they’ve got the ability to play both those sorts of games. We won’t stray too much from what we’ve been trying to do, if we can get some good go forward ball then hopefully we can stretch them a bit. You’ve got to front from a set piece point of view and they’re a very good side in that regard.

“The Africans have got a number of really good players. We’re happy with some of our boys who have stepped up and we certainly have got guys starting in this game who if you’d asked us maybe five or six weeks ago we would have thought they’d maybe be bench at best so it’s good. We want competition for places and hopefully that’ll help us get a good performance.”

New Zealand captain Tyler Bleyendaal:
“South Africa is a big side, a lot of pace and they are going to be a tough team to play against. I guess we are looking forward to the challenge, we can’t wait really. Everyone is feeling it at this stage of the tournament, three games gone plus whatever warm up matches, four day turnarounds, every team is going to be sore, you have just got to play off those little niggles. They had a tough match but I am sure they will have no problem fronting up.

“We are going to have to knuckle down and we are going to have to be physical too, we are going to have to match it and just try to dominate as best we can. Take it to them early on and just stay in the fight and keep fighting.”

New Zealand prop Willie Ioane:
“It’s going to be a big, physical game like always and like all the other South African teams they’re just going to try and out muscle us and just try and give a head clash and you know the boys are all ready for that, the physical match and we’ve just got to front up and see how it goes.”

South Africa coach Eric Sauls:
“It will be physical with the teams playing, especially with New Zealand and their experience of being world champions. Certainly I don’t think they will come just to defend the title. It will be a very tough one, it won’t be easy.

“We have to stand up, it was obviously disappointing after the defeat. We had to pick up the boys. I think it was very intense, one of the great games, but we made too many mistakes, especially on defence and we have worked on that.”

South Africa centre Jaco Taute:
“We want to focus on what we are going to do so we can control the controllables and just give our best on the field and bring our game to the match and see how they respond to us.

“We haven’t watched New Zealand in depth so far so we don’t really know about their key players or anything like that but we are aware New Zealand is a very good team and a very proud rugby nation. They are ranked number one in the world so we know we’re going to be up against tough competition so we’ve prepared very well and I think we are up for the challenge.”

  • @KSA Shark © (Comment 4) : I’m just afraid we’ll lose, will it have been worth the effort watching if we lose? I’m still contemplating it.

    I might also have to flip between m-net and SS2 during add breaks, wish they chose a better day to play.

  • Bleyendall and Savea are special ?

    Could one or both make the AB Squad for the RWC next year.

    People seem to think Cruden and Guildford will….rumour is these two are better and the former were in the U20′s last year. :?:

    I’m starting to think I might need to get myself a pvr, even though there’s hardly ever any one thing worth watching on dstv, never mind 2 shows at the same time :roll:

  • Girls amongst men. The baby boks were made to look just that, they should all burn their jerseys and be too embarrassed to tell any person they were part of this team.

    They really gave Bafana a challenge for worst ambassadors of the country, but unlike bafana I don’t think the blame is to be accounted to the players only, but rather the coach and a certain selection policy.

    One thing is certain, there is still a lot of development needed at age group for our u/19 team to be somewhat competitive, AND A NEW COACH WON’T HURT EITHER.

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 163) : He could get someone in to teach them how to tackle. The only person in the entire backline who has good tackle technique and a willingness to put his body on the line is Lambie.

    You can hide one bad tackler in your team, not six. We were never going to be good enough, we were shown up against OZ and even more so last night.

    Sauls has been in charge for three champs, never made the final. COnsidering the successes of our senior teams, we have the players.

    I think in this case, we need an overhaul of the coaching setup. And select a better side.

    SA scrums being dominated by OZ and NZ. Backline that can’t tackle.

    Yes it does, it means SA has not been up to the standard they are more than capable to be at, and thus has not de-throned the kiwis, as is our mission to do.

    Even Lambie looked average last night, and I can’t believe that a player of his quality goes off over night….Sauls and a serious lack of team spirit is costing us at junior level.

    So if Lambie has a crap game it is the coach’s fault.

    OMG, now I’ve hear it all. :roll:

  • @wpw (Comment 178) : NO, when the whole team including one of the brightest young talents in SA rugby has 2 crap games, not unlike the two previous u/20 teams….now that’s the coach’s fault :!: :!:

  • @robdylan (Comment 181) :

    My point: Maybe Lambie just had an off day.

    I know what I said about the coach BUT NZ totally outplayed us and deserved to win.

    The fact that Lambie was crap isn’t the coach’s fault.

    Sheesh moet ek vir julle prentjies teken?? :twisted:

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 182) :

    2 crap games?? I thought Lambie played rather well against the Aussies.

    Let me ask you this: When we lost 0-49 to Aus in 2006, was it Jake White’s fault or were the players also too blame??

    Os
    Smit
    CJ
    Danie PK
    Matfield
    Joe
    Juan
    Spies
    Januarie
    Mal Jaco
    Habana
    Olivier
    TWG13
    Akona
    Percy

    That is not such a bad team and yet we lost 0-49.

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 173) : Agree totally!
    Lambie did well to hold his head above water in the Ozzie game, but couldn’t cope against the tsunami of collapse that was the Baby Boks last night.

  • @wpw (Comment 178) : No, but if the team has two kak games against quality opposition, the same coach who hasn’t been able, in three years, to take his team into the finals, when the seniors are world, BIL, 3N and S14 champs (ie we have the talent), then what’s the common thread here?

  • @wpw (Comment 184) : Joke White obviously, just because we won the ’07 wc don’t make him the wonderful coach he claims himself to be, we all know that wc we had a rather easy run in.

    You kinda arguing in my favor here, baby boks lost due to their crappy coach.

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 187) : Don’t know what WC you watched – but none of those games was easy….and dont forget we beat England 36 : 0 and beat them again in the finals. Understand you are upset but give credit where credit is due.

  • @wpw (Comment 184) : Now that doesn’t seem like a bad team but in the 2006 tri nations that was Spies’ first game, Big Joe was played out of position. The front row was bullied. The entire backline had a nightmare. “It was a drop kick” looked like a deer in the headlights, he never could marshall a team.

    The only player who actually had a halfway decent game was Jaque Fourie.

  • @Just a Fan (Comment 189) : We faced England and Argentina as our biggest competition and almost lost against Tonga…..if we beat OZ, France and NZ then it was a great wc (not unlike the ’95 wc).

    Still glad we won it though and Joke White did instill a new era in Bok rugby which he deserves credit for, but I don’t think he’s as great as he would like everyone to believe.
