It was Round 2 of the Under-18 International Series on Paarl Gim’s muddy field on Tuesday, 13 August 2019. SA Schools and England Under-18 won while SA Schools A drew with Wales Under-18 – a lavish 31-all.

SA Schools A and England had both suffered heavy defeats in Round 1 and were much better in Round 2. France, on the pother hand, seemed to lose the panache and fluidity that they had shown against SA Schools A.

The most impressive performance was that of SA Schools who overran the Pumitas, scoring seven tries to two. That means that SA Schools are the only unbeaten team in the tournament which moves to Hoërskool Hugenote in Wellington on Saturday, 17 August 2019.


SA Schools beat Argentina 48-14

Argentina who had been so good in beating England in Stellenbosch were put sternly in their place by the efficiency of the SA Schools forwards and the running of their backs.

The Schools backs scored five of the team’s seven tries as they exploited overlaps out wide.

At half-time SA Schools already led 29-7

Scorers

For SA Schools:
Tries: Bobby Alexander 2, Henco van Wyk 2, Jacques Goosen, Gideon van Wyk, Zeilinga Strydom
Cons: Kian Meadon 5
Pen: Kian Meadon

For Argentina:
Tries: Facundo Villarba, Ignacio Ruiz
Cons: Ramiro Weisberg, Thomas Oria

Teams

SA Schools: 15 Zeilinga Strydom, 14 Mntungwa Mapantsela, 13 Henco van Wyk, 12 Tyler Bocks, 11 Tharquinn Manuel, 10 Kian Meadon, 9 Dylan Alexander, 8 George Cronjé, 7 Jarrod Taylor, 6 Siyemukela Ndlovu, 5 Dylan de Leeuw, 4 Connor Evans, 3 Sibusiso Shongwe, 2 Jacques Goosen (captain), 1 Jan-Hendrik Wessels
Replacements: 16 Andre-Hugo Venter, 17 Okuhle Siyeni, 18 Blaine Golden, 19 Wandile Hlope, 20 Keketso Morabe, 21 Keane Galant, 22 Boldwin Hansen, 23 Jurich Claasens, 24 Quan Horn, 25 Gideon van Wyk, 26 Simon Miller

Argentina: 15 Lautaro Sánchez Rubio, 14 Valentín D’Angelo, 13 Justo Piccardo, 12 Mariano García Ascárate, 11 Iñaki Delguy, 10 Ramiro Waisberg, 9 Facundo Villarba, 8 Juan Bautista Arranz, 7 Ignacio Ruiz, 6 Jerónimo Gómez Vara, 5 Bautista Grenon, 4 Marcelo Toledo, 3 Nicolás Ciancio, 2 Martín Vaca, 1 Álvaro Llaver
Replacements used: 16 Nicolás Toth, 17 Bautista Bernasconi, 18 Franciso Moreno, 19 Thomas Gallo, 23 Abraham Elías, 24 Joaquín Oviedo, 25 Julián Conti, 26 Tomás Oria, 27 Julián Hernández, 28 Mateo Camerlinckx

Referee: Manuel Bottino (Italy)

SA Schools A and Wales drew 31-31

The draw was neat – four tries each, for conversions each and a penalty each.

After a much better start than against France and with more determined tackling, the SA Schools side came from being 24-17 down to dominate the second half and deserve this draw.

Scorers

For SA Schools A:
Tries: Teague Loelly 2, Sonwabo Sokoyi, Sibusiso Javu
Cons:: Jacques Rossouw 4
Pen: Jacques Rossouw

For Wales:
Tries: Jake Morgan, Thomas King, Luke Davies, Mason Grady
Cons:: Thomas Mathews 4
Pen: Thomas Mathews

Teams

Replacements: 16 Lukhanyo Vokozela, 17 Rynhardt Rijnsburger, 18 Gerhard van der Merwe, 19 Marco van Rhyn, 20 Sisonke Vumazonke, 21 Daimon O’Connell, 22 Joseph Iye, 23 Indiphile Tyeda, 24 Renzo du Plessis, 25 Josh van Vreden, 26 Nsuku Baloyi

Referee: Paul Mente (South Africa)

England beat France 29-25

There were two intercepts in the match leading to long-range tries, one in the first half by Killian Tixeront of France who ran 56 unhampered metres to score, the other in the second half by Will Joseph who ran 60 unhampered metres to score.

France started off well enough with a try by fullback Mathéo Garcia who just squeezed into the left corner, and then Tixeront intercept try, and they led 10-3 at the end of the first quarter of the game.

The next twp quarters belonged to England. France led 13-10 at half-time but at the end of the third quarter England led 29-13 and looked in command.

But then France fought back and got to 28-25 with a minute to play.

One England try was especially significant. France had a scrum five metres from their line. England won a tighthead and substitute Louis Hillman-Cooper, resplendent in pristinely white togs, flashed over under the posts. It seems that the problems with Argentinian scrumming is endemic.

England kicked off, France ran with the ball, England tackled, France knocked on, England kept possession and then, the siren sounded, they kicked out for their victory.

Four tries each but three conversions to one.

Scorers

For England:
Tries: Will Trenholm 2, Louis Hillman-Cooper, Will Joseph
Cons:: Charlie Atkinson, Orlando Bailey 2
Pen: Charlie Atkinson.

For France:
Tries: Mathéo Garcia, Killian Tixeront, Wes Lindor, Logan Tabet
Con: Mathéo Garcia
Pen: Mathéo Garcia.

Will Joseph is Jonathan’s younger brother?
I think my son played him last year when Millfield toured here. Didn’t think he particularly stood out at the time tbh.

Yeah, that's right. Also plays 13. Not sure how good he is, but he's certainly a ringer for his brother.

Shame there's no way to watch these games.

The matches have all been full value.

Nice to have the visiting refs too, all of whom have been excellent.


this tournament is traditionally held in the Cape and with all the rain the going has been soft. would love to see the youngsters get a run on the hard pitches of the Highveld next time. Should be invaluable experience for the European players.

One irritating thing has been the persistent whooping and crowing by the England side.

Is this an English schools rugby thing?

This is not a troll.

They were fairly reserved after another routine win at Twickenham last year.

Has it been a good series? I've looked up the Wales results which could have been worse.
