All Black Up-and-comers

NZ has won the world under-19 rugby championship for the first time since 2004, with a decisive 31-7 victory over South Africa in Belfast, Ireland. “To win tonight, and also so resoundingly, was just fantastic,” said NZ captain Chris Smith. “We have to give South Africa credit because that was a hard final … We said we had to take them on, and we did.” Goal kicker Trent Renata scored two tries and set up a third for Jackson Willison, while Robert Fruean and Kade Poki made one try each. Australia won the play-off for third, beating Wales 25-21.
