The semi-finals for the U20 Junior World Championship were decided yesterday and I got all 4 right – the games (on Tuesday) will be –
England v South Africa
NZ v France
It was however, a close run thing with England only beating Australia 20-19 with a penalty at the death.
England would have qualified anyway with a losing bonus point and a better points difference than France – but it was good to top the group with 3 wins.
It was a great result for England who have been denuded of several key players who are in Argentina with the senior side.
The semi-finals are live on TV – which the pool rounds weren’t (ITV4 6pm and 8pm)
