Junior Boks to face France in bronze medal play-off

The Junior Springboks will say “arrivederci” after tonight’s final whistle, when they take the field in their final outing at this year’s World Rugby Under-20 Championship in Cremona Italy.

The Junior Springboks will face France, after a disappointing semi-final result against England earlier in the week, in the bronze medal 3rd place play-off tonight.

Coach Dawie Theron has made a few changes upfront and one amongst the backs. Mzamo Majola, Jan van der Merwe, Jacques Vermeulen and Dan du Preez are the changes upfront, with backline player Malcolm Jaer the only other change in the starting XV.

“There is no hiding from the fact that the result against England was a huge disappointment. However, we will take that as a motivation to finish the tournament hopefully on a positive note with a win in our last match.

“Overall we had a good time together as a squad. We grew as a close knit unit during our extensive training camp in Stellenbosch, the Argentina tour right and the past three weeks here at the tournament in Italy. We have one match left to do our country proud and we are highly motivated to play France on Saturday,” explained captain, Hanro Liebenberg.

Kick-off is at 18:30, and the match will be televised live on SuperSport.

Junior Springboks:

15 Warrick Gelant 14 Malcolm Jaer 13 EW Viljoen 12 Daniel du Plessis 11 Leolin Zas 10 Brandon Thomson 9 Ivan van Zyl 8 Hanro Liebenberg 7 Dan du Preez 6 Jacques Vermeulen 5 RG Snyman 4 Jason Jenkins 3 Thomas du Toit 2 Jan van der Merwe1 Mzamo Majola

Reserves:

16 Joseph Dweba 17 Ox Nche 18 Frans van Wyk 19 Abongile Nonkontwana 20 Jean-Luc du Preez 21 Marco Jansen van Vuren 22 Tinus de Beer 23 Grant Hermanus

  • Is Mzamo Majola good? Never heard of him but it’s nice to see that both props are Sharks, good sign for the future.

  • I don’t quite know where to post this…but the Highlanders are in the semis having beaten the Chiefs 24-14. So now it just remains to see whether the Stormers or the Brumbies will join them…

  • Well done to the Brumbies. It was only deserved after they finished higher than the Stormers on the log but had to travel away thanks to a bizarre and ridiculous format.

    How embarrassing for the Stormers though – have they ever won a play off game? I seem to recall they may even have made a final once so they must have, but I can remember more play off losses than wins.

  • @Seth101 (Comment 248) : Unfortunately it is what it is. Would you have complained if we were in stormers shoes and had a shot because of the current setup? You work with the cards you are dealt. I would have like one sa side to get somewhere. I do however feel the officiating and sanzar “judiciary” system which is anything but fair or unbiased, is stacked against SA and effectively used to thin out the contending sa sides by its strange rulings. But that’s just my conspiracy theory.

  • @coolfusion (Comment 249) : Jeez bru a team that comes 7th makes the playoffs and you think there is a conspiracy bias against us.
    Stormers had no right to be in a playoff,and once again when the chips were down they choked.
    Alistar Coetzee looked like Yoda in the box and old Thelofo looked like Jabba the hut.
    I did call this when they insulted us and sent their ”B team”,losing is a habit.
    My province friend chainsaw must be wiping the yolk off his face.
    Having said that I thought the earlier game was phenomenal,that is what Super rugby is supposed to be.
    I so hope we can one day get back to playing this type of ruby.

  • @The hound (Comment 250) : Have to agree, they had no right to be there and I don’t care at all that they lost. When I watch super rugby I don’t support SA rugby I support the Sharks, it’s our interest for SA teams to lose and so I couldn’t care less.

  • @The hound (Comment 256) : Yes agree, that completely baffled me. Originally when I saw the NZ ref for the Sharks/Stormers match, I presumed since they knew the Stormers were hosting a playoff match, they had the NZ ref already in SA for the playoff and used him for the Sharks match. But nooooo I was wrong, and SANZAR seems not to worry about travel costs as they flew in these officials and chose not to use a neutral referee that was already in the country for the playoff. Sometimes I think that SANZAR gives zero consideration to the economics of the competition.

  • @The hound (Comment 256) : @Dancing Bear (Comment 257) : While I sympathise with your points, to be fair I hardly think it is sinister or at this stage about economics. We can argue about the policy – as I have repeatedly done – but I think this is just about them applying their policy. They treat all refs as neutral and make knock out appointments based on performance during the season. And Peyper and Pollock were two of the better refs in the competition. My bet is Joubert will get a semi…

  • Why would you guys think that a New Zealander would be a neutral judge in a contest between Australia and South Africa?

    New Zealand is for all practical purposes an Autonomous Australian State.
    Kiwis and Aussies share geography, language, mother country and culture. They have a shared defining National Moment (ANZAC) and often cannot even tell their own flags apart.

  • @The hound (Comment 256) : Well add to that Steyn harsh punishment at a point where we could have made a difference and built some consistency some really terrible decisions two games in a row. Little or zero punishment for similar infringements from nz and aus teams. Like I said my theory is when they do get the opportunity to disrupt sa teams and ensure less teams make it they make the most of it.

  • Of course it feeling like a conspiracy doesn’t make it so but it sure feels like it. Feels engineered and if an sa team is to make it they have to defeat other team utterly and work so much harder. Don’t know about you but even the teams who made playoffs weren’t that great. Seen much better in previous years.

If the stormers win its bad for the Lions . and if the stormers loose it makes no difference . so what if the Sharks play against the stormers in the final ? do i need to take out my measuring tape and figure out who is closer ? or google maps ?

But I don’t quite follow your logic. During the course of the regular season the current system clearly means you want the other teams in your conference to lose! It is one aspect of what makes this system so daft! But once the playoffs have arrived, there really isn’t a direct effect on us anymore. I also don’t want the Stormers to win Super Rugby before we do…but the basis for wanting them to lose is no longer what is good for my team. It’s simply that I don’t like the Stormers… :mrgreen:

    http://www.supersport.com/rugby/article.aspx?Id=3063524
    Interesting news…my thoughts:
    1. I’m not thrilled to have all our guys play in Japan until so close before the start of Super Rugby. When will they rest? Will they be able to prepare properly with our squad?
    2. I do get, though, that it is part of the rugby landscape now and that w don’t have much choice if we want to keep these guys.
    3. There is one gem in this article though: The sentence that Marcell will be returning to the Sharks after his stint in Japan. Is that official? I hope so! In that case…YAY!!!!
