Cape Town - The Junior Springboks completed their first two training sessions in Auckland since arriving earlier in the week in New Zealand for the IRB Junior World Championship (JWC).

The JWC takes place from June 2 to June 20 in Auckland and surrounding areas, with the Baby Boks up against Scotland on June 2 in their opening fixture.

Cell C Sharks prop Thomas du Toit was especially glad to be part of the training session after he joined up with his SA Under-20 team-mates on Tuesday. The front ranker did not attend the training camp back home in Stellenbosch because of Super Rugby commitments with the Durban franchise.

On finally meeting up with his Baby Bok team-mates, Du Toit said: “I was really looking forward to meet the guys and I’ve heard that there was a very good spirit in the camp. I know quite a few of the boys and they all made me feel welcome and I felt at home from the start,” enthused Du Toit.

He added: “It was a good feeling to finally run onto the training field with the guys. Now we are all looking forward to a few more good training sessions before the tournament kicks off,” according to Du Toit.

The South Africans have settled in quickly into their local surroundings since their arrival. On Wednesday, they spent much of the day busy with recovery activities, which included separate gym sessions for the forward and backs as well as a swimming session.

On Thursday the team had two field sessions at the Cornwall Park fields.
