Baby Boks in our Backyard

BE SURE to come and offer your support not only for the Baby Boks but your neck of the “Hood” as the University of the Western Cape, commonly known as UWC, is set to host one of the most prestigious events on the World Rugby calendar – a first in history!!!!!

THE BABY Boks will be keen on redeeming themselves this weekend when they take on Italy in their second match of the IRB Junior World Championships.

Coming off their shocking 23-19 reverse to Ireland on Monday, Coach Dawie Theron’s troops were left with no choice but to win their remaining pool matches in efforts of qualifying for the knockout stages of the prestigious competition.

This weekend’s clash has provided the Baby Boks with that perfect opportunity of gaining momentum as they take on the bottom feeders (Italy) of their group.

Currently ranked 11th on the IRB world standings, the Italians will still be nursing the wounds of their bruising 64-5 defeat to the English on Monday only to re-enter the battle-field, four days later against a desperate, under pressure junior Springbok outfit.

Taking into consideration their home ground advantage, the Baby Boks will definitely be feeling the brunt of performing well in this year’s competition. Following their middling campaigns in recent years, Theron recently stated that there’s no better time for his team to clinch their first Under 20 Junior World Championship title and he will be using this to spur his boys on this weekend following their poor start.

“We need to go out and beat Italy well and then beat England in order to give ourselves a chance to maybe top the pool,” said Theron.

“Ironically we now know exactly what is needed and we’ve got to get that honour back,” he added.

In other Pool B matches, England are set to take on Ireland at the Danie Craven Stadium on Friday night and Theron will be keeping a close watch on that match proceedings. An England victory will stand the Baby Boks in good stead given they beat the Poms on the 12th.

Ahead of this weekends match, Baby Bok front-ranker Steven Kitshoff seemed in high-spirits after tweeting: “The problems are fixed and we’re ready for our next game.”

The burly loose-head will have to lift his game following a poor performance on Monday night.

    Baby Boks are clearly not up for the challenge as they are too defensive for the own good!
