Baby Boks smash Argentina

The SA U20s ran in seven tries in their 51-19 win over Argentina on Saturday.

The Baby Boks held a slender 15-12 lead at half-time. After 19 minutes, Patrick Howard went over near the corner flag. Flyhalf Tony Jantjies kicked the conversion and a penalty before No 8 Fabian Booysen crashed over right before the break.

Fullback Marius Schmidt scored his side’s third try in the 53rd minute (23-12) and four minutes later inside centre Jan Serfontein scored to stretch the lead to 30-12. When Argentina lock Guillermann Cruz received his second yellow card, South Africa took full advantage, with Marzauk Maarman and Abriel Griesel (two) scoring further tries.

The next match will be played on Tuesday with the final game of the three-match series taking place next Saturday.
