Juniors kings of Pacific
24 Jun 2006
New Zealand’s Junior All Blacks throttled Japan to be crowned Pacific Five Nations champions.
The Juniors, who had already won the tournament after hammering Fiji, Tonga and Samoa were too strong for Japan in Tokyo.
The Juniors scored six tries to one in a one-sided 38-8 victory to confirm their dominance in the tournament. The Kiwis led 19-3 at halftime.
Scarily, all the teams they hammered will probably go to the World Cup in France next year.
Junior All Blacks – Tries: Anthony Tuitavake 3, Caleb Ralph 2 and Cameron McIntyre tries
Conversions: McIntyre (4)
Try: Takashi Miyake
Pen: Wataru Ikeda
