Baby Boks win JWC final

2012-06-22 20:27

Cape Town - South Africa ended the dominance of New Zealand in the IRB Junior World Championship with a thrilling 22-16 final triumph at Newlands Friday.

A capacity 33,210 crowd saw the Baby Boks overcome a 10-9 half-time deficit against the Baby Blacks with scrum-half Vian van der Watt and inside centre Jan Serfontein crossing for second-half tries.

The rest of the South African points came from fly-half Handre Pollard, who succeeded with three of six penalty attempts and slotted a drop goal on the hour mark to give his team a 17-13 advantage.

Left wing Milford Keresoma went over on 34 minutes for the lone New Zealand try with fly-half Ihaia West contributing the other points via a conversion and three penalties.

New Zealand won the previous four editions of the Junior World Championship since it was introduced in 2008 while South Africa finished third three times and sixth last year.

A titanic end-to-end struggle between the under-20 sides captivated the crowd and created a wonderful atmosphere and advertisement for rugby union, apart from an ugly incident on 58 minutes.

South Africa lock Paul Willemse pulled the flowing dreadlocks of New Zealand Ofa Tu'ungafasi, who retaliated by punching the aggressor and both received red cards from English referee Greg Garner.

The Baby Blacks squandered a late chance to close the gap when they overthrew at a line-out close to the South African try-line, surrendered possession and it was the home team who finished camped in opposition territory.

Wales, who upset New Zealand in the pool phase before suffering a semi-finals hiding from the same side, finished third with a 25-17 victory over Argentina after withstanding a late Baby Pumas rally.

    What an entertaining game! Congratulations to both teams. Those mauls were the ultimate strategy and very effective. It was complete team performance from the Bokke. Well done!! Bok Groete!!

      René - 2012-06-22 20:36

      Priester, so super chuffed! Heart pounding, I think I have a tear in the eye! LoL... GREAT STUFF, very proud Bok supporter. Great team effort

      René - 2012-06-22 20:37

      Well done to Jan Serfontein, - most definitely the man of the tournament.

      Squeegee - 2012-06-22 20:39

      Best forward play by juniors I have ever seen...

      Timothy - 2012-06-22 20:40

      If you watched the game you would have noticed that kick and bulldoze rugby is how you win matches. Screw attacking play the bokkies out muscled and bulldozed their way over the kiwis and it was beautiful . Go BOKKE!

      Harold - 2012-06-22 20:40

      Rene, I believe it was my vote on fb that made the difference.

      John - 2012-06-22 20:42

      RWC 2011 revenge! Brilliant game by the baby Boks.

      René - 2012-06-22 20:45

      @Harold, thanks, I always knew you were special... @Tim, my thoughts exactly... Brains AND Brawn - excellent stuff Forgot to mention - WELL DONE to the coaching staff - Job well done

      Priester - 2012-06-22 20:47

      Howdy René! Agree, Jan Serfontein had a great tournament and he was very consistent throughout! Some great talent in this young team and most definitely some new heroes for the future!

      René - 2012-06-22 20:51

      @Priester, for sure! All in all a great team effort by all. I was so disappointed after we lost our first game against Ireland but wow they sure game back with all their might.

      christopher.columbus.3950178 - 2012-06-22 21:00

      Lets all bow down!!! are we bowing down!!!?? Bow down....RESPEC Juniors...

      christopher.columbus.3950178 - 2012-06-22 21:01

      Haha Harold!!

      maarten.slabbert.7 - 2012-06-22 21:02

      Fantastic game! I just want to say to all the obnoxious Capetonian wannabe All Black supporters. Did you hear Bryn Hall after the game? Have you ever heard Dan Carter speak, or Kevin Mealamu? It is called hummility, all true AB supporters have it. You need to learn it. My heart goes out to the Baby Blacks, but I am so rroud of the Bokkies tonight! Some of the stand outs for me where 1,2,7,9,10,12 and 15. On the NZ side I cannot think of a single player that plyed particularly badly, just the bounce of the Ball tonight. Well done Bokkies, respect to the Coaching Staff.

      christopher.columbus.3950178 - 2012-06-22 21:08

      I am waiting for Trolls!!...I will find them and DESTROY them!!

      christopher.columbus.3950178 - 2012-06-22 21:14

      @MAartin...I was so impressed with his comment after the game, I thought he was GOD...but he was not, but so well impressed with his professionalism and his identity towards this beautiful game. Well done to him....I even sent my Mother, who is the hardest rugby fan in SA, I have not met any rugby fan harder and more passionate as she is. But I sent her that comment about the way that NZ captain spoke..WEll Done IRB Junior World Cup! I jsut wish the government would take heed...oh dear..i have politicised it!!!

      matthew.bartlett.7 - 2012-06-22 21:18

      Disgraceful Capetonians booing the haka

      christopher.columbus.3950178 - 2012-06-22 21:31

      @matthew...we won...home ground lets boooo whoever comes into our back garden...i love home advantage...they do the same to us!!

      andre.ernstzen - 2012-06-23 07:24

      The bokkies mauled the baby blacks to death. Wow those mauls were awesome. Well done bokkies! We are the champions...

      marius.olivier.7 - 2012-06-23 09:42

      The moment of the game for me was that one scrum where we completely demolished the Baby Blacks. That Baby Bok tighthead is a monster. Very good news for the senior Boks in a few years time too. It is the one position we have a shortage of quality at the moment

      clive.kihn - 2012-06-23 09:56

      @Matthew: as a Capetonian, I totally agree with you - disgraceful. Those same booers would be the first to complain if the local AB supporters did likewise. Takes some of the icing off this very tasty cake.

      hugh.olphart - 2012-06-23 12:28

      The booing suck guys, no respect for the game. We are better then that. Ever watched a Wales county game? The eerie silence before a kick to posts? Scary respect. We should try it some time.

  • thabiso.letlhabane - 2012-06-22 20:32

    wat a game....... And the new world champions South Africa

      john.bucknall.1 - 2012-06-23 03:05

      Thozi - 2012-06-23 21:09

      Way to go boys, way to go. What can I say... especially against New Zealand, WOW!!

      caleb.drumm.1 - 2012-06-24 06:04

      Thabiso-You forgot to add world champions of 'the juniors' the real world champions are the All Blacks.

      Did you see all those All Black fans without teeth?

      mario.borchards - 2012-06-23 12:25

      Did you see how many people without front teeth supported the Boks. Shame Harold you really have no life and no brains. You are such an attention seeker. Get yourself a poodle!

  • Psyborge - 2012-06-22 20:33

    Wow, that was just awesome! Well done Bokkies!

  • dawiej - 2012-06-22 20:34

      René - 2012-06-22 20:39

      @Dawie, I was actually thinking when they sang the respective Anthems, these wannabe AB's support them however they clearly don't know the anthem because I could only hear 22 - 25 people singing.

      Harold - 2012-06-22 20:44

      The haasbek brigade.

      jean.tredoux.5 - 2012-06-22 20:44

      Hate watching a game at newlands when the AB's are playing... Urge is always there to make that passion gap of theirs a bit bigger.

      dawiej - 2012-06-22 20:48

      ek voel so aan my gat Suid Afrika is op n drumpel van n nuwe rugby triompf era

      christopher.columbus.3950178 - 2012-06-22 21:03

      ckrohne1 - 2012-06-22 21:05

      @Dawie: off course not. He and his type must take a leaf out of the baby all black captain and give credit where it is due.....

      René - 2012-06-22 21:16

      @Maestro, it is embarrassing however the real 'authenticated' AB supporters find them quite 'strange' - I know quite a few NZ's and they find it even more 'random' and peculiar! But that's SA for you!

      warren.vanwyk.3 - 2012-06-22 21:18

      So Cape, the glory seeker, didn't find his glory... he only saw it!

      Gerald - 2012-06-23 11:03

      Yeah Dawie, he and that other loud mouth Nzbro are very conspicuous by their absence suddenly.

      bfvillet - 2012-06-22 21:24

      this must be the typical blue bull stereotype of coloured people seems it is the only thing they know probably has something to do with them marrying their sisters shame

      Harold - 2012-06-22 21:29

      Wtf?

      Harold - 2012-06-22 21:46

      It'ssomething racist, Maestro. Let's ignore him.

      bfvillet - 2012-06-22 22:53

      sure would this herald and his crew all seem to harp on this that the coloured supporters of the All blacks have no front teeth they usually use afrikaans words when they make these remarks this is the same man that yesterday called the previous bok coach a darkie and how he in the past supported everyone against south africa because he was the coach.I guess that these people are doing exactly what he has done although they are not the unashamed racists that he is.

      jacques.pretorius2 - 2012-06-23 07:05

      yawwwnn.... Racism is sooooo boring..... Doesn't matter from which point of view you look at it. Let's just celebrate our boytjies success and hope the senior boys hammer the Roses later today! Please....

      clive.kihn - 2012-06-23 10:05

      Harold sees everything through a blue (or pink) mist, but for once I agree with him over bf(bloodyfool?)villet's racist crap. This is the sort of comment that should be censored out - it borders on hate speech.

      mario.borchards - 2012-06-23 12:44

      Harold is a the biggest racist on this forum and I also believe the biggest moron. stop stereotyping brown and black people. Sport is supposed to unite a country not divide. BTW Harold, the greater majority (by far) of Brown people in Western Cape support the Boks, not NZ.

  • henningbrazer - 2012-06-22 20:59

    We all know Kia Ora means welcome - now, how do you say "thanks for coming, but leave the trophy" :) Amazing game - congrats to the Baby Boks - you did us proud Thanks to the Baby Blacks for the competition and your captain's grace in defeat against a better team. To all the Cape based All Black supporters... I hope the exit from the stadium was awkward ;)

      darryl.maze1 - 2012-06-22 21:34

      Well said HB. It just disgusts me that some ppl are SA born and support the all blacks because of the past. They must get over it or fly back with the bby all blacks and go live in NZ if that's how theygoing to be.

      henningbrazer - 2012-06-22 21:40

      @ Darryl - i have *some* and I mean only *some* understanding of it - especially a generational thing where the grandfather and father supported the All Blacks - so, that naturally carries through to current generation too. BUT - nobody can say the game is not transforming naturally. There were many players of colour on the field today in the Boks team - and each one I feel on merit So - as our Rugby progresses naturally - hopefully these NZ cape supporters will also turn around and start supporting their country - as they should But I have to admit - I LOVE it when we win and they lose - so AWESOME! :)

      Jco - 2012-06-22 23:49

      Hi guys, do not make a mistake! Many of us working oversees or staying in NZ are GREAT SA supporters! I can tell you guys the real New Zealander is not like that Cape guy who is silent today. Those people in SA who supports other teams and make the bad statements, bring a disgrace to real NZ people. My friends in NZ are overall good losers. Early this morning a Kiwi friend who shared a meal last night phone and congratulate me! Go Bokkies!

      henningbrazer - 2012-06-23 00:56

      Hi @jco I would never say someone who does not live in ZA cannot be a ZA supporter - far from it. I have lived all over the world - and no matter where I am, I will always support the Boks unless I misunderstood the point of your post - for that, I then apologize :) - it is a bit late :D

      Jco - 2012-06-23 01:18

      You absulate correct! It is the guys like that Cape bloke who make it difficult for us who support the Boks even staying and working oversees. Not do they make our name bad, they also a bad example.

  • bradley.october.1 - 2012-06-22 21:01

    Well done boys u did us proud

  • ckrohne1 - 2012-06-22 21:02

    Phenomenal effort by the Laaities.....They got me at a point of a nervous breakdown... almost. Well done.....Great sportsmanship by Hall(the Kiwi captain) to congratulate the South Africans for a great tournament. Just tiny bit disappointed that the Bokkie captain didn't acknowledged the baby all blacks for being part of the tournament and giving them a run for their money.... This is a sign of what is about to come in next couple of years for the Green and Gold. @Fake Maori a.k.a Cape. The drives down at Newlands you were boasting about for the baby blacks sounded like "gepiepery" in comparison to the cheers by the crowds for the Baby Bokke...... I saw one all black supporter with a pink belt- lol...was that you......

      Mate, regarding Bok captain not tipping his hat to the Blacks - you can put that down the the adrenaline of the moment in the win you can see like the Blacks captain that the kid is a class act - and I am sure post match presser we'll hear him thank his opponents on the day

      ckrohne1 - 2012-06-22 21:46

      @HB: Probably...

  • donavan.boshoff - 2012-06-22 21:02

    haha love it!!! the future of world cup domination. springboks: nobody likes us, and we dont like nobody!!! well done babyboks

      klark.kent.942 - 2012-06-22 22:20

      You really are stroking yourself you call that dominantion with a referee that was so one sided it wasnt funny. Try winning away from home you tugger

      john.edwards.733450 - 2012-06-22 22:45

      klark the ref ? .. sorry it couldn't be CJ or a NZ ref bra ... you should send that memo abt winning away from home to the senior Ab team too .. keep rollin' sixes hero

      SpringBok - 2012-06-23 09:16

      klark kent aka super chop, if that wasn't total domination what was it? you fairies were crying after the game, DOMINATED!!

      clive.kihn - 2012-06-23 13:51

      @klark: I certainly haven't read every comment here, but yours is the first I've seen that blames the ref, so I don't think many of your fellow AB supporters will agree with you. If you don't agree that the Baby Boks dominated up front - where virtually all meaningful rugby games are won and lost - then I think you must have been watching some other game last night. Get over it, and look forward to the upcoming 4-nations tournament.

  • Stewart Croucamp - 2012-06-22 21:02

    So proud of you boytjies. At last there is hope from our youth!

  • Jonathan Rose - 2012-06-22 21:05

    I didnt watch the game,i wonder what the post match interview was from opposition captain and coach..did they give us credit 4 our win or did they talk about their mistakes and missed chances..gonna go into evry nz site to read their comments about our gr8 win

      John - 2012-06-22 21:08

      Their captain was very gracious in defeat. I see a big future for that young bloke in an All Blacks jersey too. He got injured close to full time which is a real shame. Both Captains seem like great players and great human beings to be honest. couldn't have asked for a better final

      henningbrazer - 2012-06-22 21:14

      @ John - the Baby Black captain was a class act

      klark.kent.942 - 2012-06-22 22:21

      They would have been much more humble than the arrogant prat of your captain who hasnt been taught any manners by his parents ,and doesnt yet know how to give credit to the other team. Its that sort of arrogance that make most rugby fans around the world hate the boks

      john.edwards.733450 - 2012-06-22 23:52

      'most rugby fans around the world hate the boks" .. really ? You took a poll ?

      ckrohne1 - 2012-06-23 09:33

      @klark.kent: Speaking of an arrogant captain, McCheat in last season's post match interview couldn't hide his soar loser mentality when he said and I quote," the Reds probably deserved to win the super rugby title" Now "probably" doesn't sound too sportsmanship when you consider that the Reds were top of table for most of the season......

  • cape.maori - 2012-06-22 21:06

    Well done and congratulations to the baby boks! A well deserved win! Enjoy the victory, you deserved it! Go Baby Blacks!

      henningbrazer - 2012-06-22 21:13

      uhmm..they are going - home on a plane joke - good on you to congratulate the better team on the day now, go for a drive in your Kia with Aura :)

      ckrohne1 - 2012-06-22 21:17

      For the first time I actually gave you a Thumps up....Way to go....If you go on like this I might start to like you.......Not really, you must first repent from your wrong doings and turn back to your Home....Anyway...Big of you to come out and congratulate the Boks....

      clive.kihn - 2012-06-23 13:57

      Thanks, Cape; I hope Klark read your comment, as his bitterness is going to end in health problems if he doesn't learn to be gracious when his team loses. And Maestro's comment was totally off the mark.

  • brian.ndlovu.359 - 2012-06-22 21:11

    Hey I would congratulate babe bok for putting effort to make us proudly South African I think our rugby has still have a bright future

    go bokke, lets get em tomorrow too

  • catgirl1971 - 2012-06-22 21:23

    Congrats Baby Boks! Wow! Now our senior and junior rugby teams have won Rugby World Cups unlike those useless wankers Baloser Baloser. BTW Cape never count your chickens before they hatch - it's very embarrassing when your windgat bragging leaves you with egg on your face you toothless wonder. Are you drowning your sorrows now in your papsak? LOL!

      Lonne - 2012-06-22 21:40

      Not too sure which game you were watching catgirl1971 but I haven't seen any TOOTHLESS supporters on tv unless you were watching jukskei or is it just your brainless prejudice after a few doppe of mampoer that is coming to the fore.

      ckrohne1 - 2012-06-22 21:51

      @lonne.ranger- not to be funny here,I did saw at least saw 2 coloured ooms one was a Springbok and one was a all black.....

      clive.kihn - 2012-06-23 14:00

      Very appropriate nickname, cat, given your tasteless, prejudice-filled comments.

  • liezl.venter.9 - 2012-06-22 21:25

    Absolutely Brilliant!! Best performance I've seen in a long time from such a young side. Congratulations, you deserve it. Proudly South African!!!

  • darryl.maze1 - 2012-06-22 21:36

    Well done Baby Boks!!!! You have made a nation proud. Thanks to the all blacks for a hard game. You guys gave it your all. Could'nt have asked for a better final.

  • Lonne - 2012-06-22 21:37

    Well done to the Baby Boks they were the better team on the day and deserve to win. SARU however dropped the ball with transformation in this tournament. I thought these are the kind of tournaments they would have used to showcase transformation. It looks like we will still talk about transformation in 20years time because it is just not happening. A handfull of players from the disadvantaged communities is just a disgrace!!!

      ckrohne1 - 2012-06-22 21:56

      @lonne, seriously? Do you have to? I mean let the best player be selected for the position.......I dont give a hoot if the Springboks are all white or Bafana Bafana are all black as long as they win, which is what sports is all about or should be.....the black and coloured players that were in the team tonight can feel proud of them selves because they deserve the spots. The played exceptional.... I would love to see more blacks playing rugby and more whites playing soccer....

      thabiso.s.bokwe - 2012-06-22 22:21

      I do not think there is any player of colour who wouldn't want to be selected on merit. Not only does it put undue pressure on the player, but it also hinders his development. I couldn't give a flying continental if the whole team was white, if there's no player of colour good enough to make the matchday 22, then I support whoever is selected. PERIOD!

      Lean - 2012-06-22 22:25

      Colour of ones skin has nothing to do with it. We all have green blood, wake up and smell the coffee. Best players will and should always be selected as long as their blood is green with us, Get it?

      warren.petersen.733 - 2012-06-22 23:01

      Do u want 22 non whites...wtf wake up...sport is 4 all....good enough......plz play...f?:_'@wanker,,,,

      Nicholas - 2012-06-22 23:05

      The competition is a showcase of rugby played by the best possible players, not a showcase of "transformation".

  • anwar.addinall - 2012-06-22 21:37

    Brilliant game bokkies! Awesome!!! Well done and well done to Cape Town for gr8 support.......33,210......not too shabby.

  • Jonathan Rose - 2012-06-22 21:39

      René - 2012-06-22 22:05

      @Jonathan, we feel the same, however Jan Serfontein won the award - maar het jy nie vroeer gese jy's 'dronk' nie??
