Baby Blacks advance to Junior World Championship final

1:06 pm on 18 June 2012

The New Zealand under-20 rugby side will attempt to claim their fifth consecutive Junior World Championship title after beating Wales 30-6 in the semi-finals at Newlands.

The Baby Blacks suffered their first defeat in four years against the Welsh in miserable conditions in pool play but dominated Monday morning's match, scoring four tries to one, to set up a final against hosts South Africa, who beat Argentina 35-3 in the second semi-final.

The New Zealand captain Bryn Hall says the side were desperate to avenge their earlier defeat.

The final will be played at Newlands on Saturday morning.
