Craig Barry scored a brace in the SA U18 side’s convincing 25-5 victory over France U18 in East London.
The South African schoolboys made good use of the wind in the first half with Johan Goosen slotting five penalties. But it was in the second half where they scored two free-flowing tries to add to the 15-0 half-time score.
Barry rounded off both moves and the poor French defence wasn’t helped by a series of changes in the second stanza.
The SA U18s will now face Namibia on 20 July before tackling England on 23 July.
