France U20s will be hoping for an emphatic win in their second fixture of the Junior World Cup, when they play Japan Under 20s at the Stadio XXV Aprile in Parma on Saturday. Having already despatched Wales in their opening contest, another win would help the French to maintain the pressure on the reigning Champions England in Pool A.

Although the France Under 20s did not gain a bonus point from their opening fixture, which will have left them a little disappointed given that they scored their third try with 25 minutes of the match still remaining, they will have been satisfied enough with the outcome, a 19-10 victory over one of their rivals for the one guaranteed semi-final spot from the Pool. Given that Japan seven tries by the 38th minute against England in their opening game, the Japanese will probably consider the eventual scoreline, 7-59 to be not too bad at all.

The Japanese will certainly be looking to emulate their efforts at the recent Oceana U20s tournament, where they conceded 75 points to the Junior Blacks in their opening match, but got progressively better and more competitive with each subsequent fixture. However, a French win looks odds on, which would set up a potential winner take all clash with England in the final round of Pool A fixtures.
