Baby Blacks run riot against Wales in Junior World Championships

Baby Blacks run riot against Wales in Junior World Championships

The New Zealand under 20 side put in another commanding performance at the Junior World Championship in Italy, this time crushing Wales 92-0.

The Baby Blacks, who are perennial favourites at this age grade, were at their clinical best, punishing Wales for their errors, once again showing that they have their systems firmly in place in New Zealand.

While boasting players with NPC and Super Rugby experience, the Baby Blacks - triple world champions - showed their class as they turned over ball frequently, maximising the opportunities handed to them. They scored 14 tries, which is actually two less than the current record for the tournament, which is when South Africa beat the USA 108-18 in 2008.

Flyhalf Gareth Anscombe was a constant threat, and as with their opening match, kicked well as he equalled last week's impressive tally of 22 points in the game.

Argentina have the task of stopping the black tide next, heading for 17 consecutive victories, when they meet on Sunday.

The following two videos give a rundown of each other days play, focused predominantly on New Zealand's dominance. We'll try organise highlights from the other games soon.

Was that good old Justin Marshall commentating? I really do like him, when he's with a team of guys or even doing the main stuff himself, I really rate him a commentator. Would love to see him get plenty of air time come RWC.

This is embarassing though. Considering USA lost with the score they did...they probably had so many random guys playing for their team....but this is Wales' future lol, damn. It always seems the bigstrongfast wingers seem to tear up this comp. Savea, Puitau (sp?) etc.

It's the Junior World Cup, most of these players will go on to play for their natioanl teams in the next few years, all will be club or province players.
You don't care about it? Do you even like rugby?

New Zealand have a welsh 13! The question is, would he have been such a player if he had stayed i n Wales? My point: (also taken from the evidence on show here) age grade development in New Zealand is leagues ahead of anyone else it seems!! P.S. Wales, that boy could still play for you if ya snap him up....just a thought!!

For all of those saying embarrasing, I would like to see one of you in that field playing against that team. I bet that most of you are fat ass losers sitting on your computer thinking you know something about rugby.

Wales had a great game against argentina, and lets not forget these are the all blacks.

Yes Didier, that was the junior All Blacks, but the worrying thing is, that was also supposed to be the Junior Welsh team. Given how big Rugby is in Wales, it is highly embarrasing. As for the Dick who rates 7s above this, you have clearly not watched any of the games, I have watched quite a few and find it as entertaining as the full internationals.

Only reason it is embarrassing is that Italy a country not known for rugby put up more of a fight. The difference is the kiwis go into every game thinking they are the best and that no team is good enough to be them. Wales just dont have that mental strength.

If the welsh 13 for NZ wants to have a long international career then he should go to Wales. If he stays he will most likely end up having 1 or 2 caps.

what exactly are you basing that on? The JWC was started 3yrs ago and should be used to create depth and quality for the senior teams. As you can see it seems to be working quite well for New Zealand.

England aren't best in the world at any sport that I can think of now that you mention it, why would U20's be any different?

From a rugby fans point of view it's great stuff to watch, fast skillful and no 10 scrums to break things up.

Thanks for the post RD

to be fair, a fair few players left the U20 set up for wales last year, and maybe the next group of youngsters will be better. However.... playing in wales i know its all about gym and hardly any skills work, which clearly inst working. WRU needs a massive shake up from u8s to the regions. Got to feel sorry for argentina though, who we beat before that nz game

wales were gash i was laughing watchin the game because it was so embarassing. why we changed our team from the team that took apart the argies i'll neevr know. not sure why he dropped morgan and made 7 changes from the previous match. it showed how much better the set up in new zealand is, there was a few little scuffles that you could say the welsh 'won' but when you lose 92-0 theres not much to brag about there? we should concentrate on our skills rather than gym work. the gym work is the easy stuff, the skills takes longer to develop

Dont NZ youth train in weight divisions rather than age? So that instead of big boys just running everyone over they're stuck against kids their size forcing them to develop good hands, quick feet and running lines.

While the younger year is developed through training and also an opportunity to go to Europe for education and/or rugby training.

"..clearly no clue about Rugby or life" hmmm, well thought statement there. How on earth you would have any idea is beyond me.
Seeing as I have to spell it out for you; When I say not THAT impressive, I mean not as impressive as NZ in the U20's in the seniors or if the current season is anything to go by rugby 7's.
You see the last world cup is past tense, while my phrase talks of the present, I'm surprised you didn't pick that up while you were having a moment of enlightenment on the life of someone you don't know.
They are currently behind Argentina in their group, and as rankings go, lie in 12place in the all time RWC 7's averages...so I stand by my point as it seems to be quite a bit more informed than yours.

What?
You do realise that new zealand is a nation of immigrants from all over the world right?
That there's more people with Samoan names in Auckland than in any other city in the world?
That there are immigrants from every country in Europe and most countries in Asia who have moved to NZ and raised families there?
You could be named Smith, Nguyen, Faingaa or Van den Bosh and still be a third genration Nzer.
What an incredibly ignorant statement.

Alot do have UK or irish names, alot have Islander names, alot have Maori names.
But alot have Eastern European or Medditeranean heritage (at the end of WW2 huge numbers of southern and eastern europeans moved to Aus and NZ). Loads of Italians and Greek. Loads of Yugoslavians (alot mvoed there after WW2, alot during and after the wars in the 90s).
There's also large numbers of Asians, particularly Chinese and Vietnamese.
Nguyen and NG are very common names in NZ.
The point it is that NZ is a country where the majority of people's ancestors came from somewhere else. You could have any last name, from any national background and be a born and raised kiwi.
The same thing applies to other immigrant nations, like Aus or the US.

The welsh press hyped up the team after they beat argentina, this however was a monumental dicking. argentina played ok against NZ by all accounts.

the future is looking good for welsh rugby, i look forward to seeing their players being arrested outside mcdonalds in cardiff and pouting with fake tans and dangerous levels of hair product in their fringes.
