Junior Boks batter SWD

Fullback Curwin Bosch scored 33 points as the Junior Boks beat SWD 58-14 in their final warm-up match in Oudtshoorn.

Tries from centre Franco van den Berg, Bosch and wing Mosolwa Mafuma gave the Junior Boks a 21-0 lead after 25 minutes.

SWD hit back with a converted try, before prop Kwenzo Blose scored the Junior Boks’ fourth try just before the break.

They extended their lead early in the second half when flyhalf Manie Libbok pounced on a loose ball and raced away to the tryline.

The hosts scored their second try in the 56th minute, but Bosch responded with three penalty goals and his second try.

Edwill van der Merwe scored the Junior Boks’ seventh try late in the game to complete an emphatic victory.

The team leaves on 2 June for the World Rugby U20 Championship in Manchester from 7-25 June.
