The New Zealand Under 20s, who are looking for their first IRB Junior World Championship Title since the tournament was last held in Italy back in 2011, when they defeated England in the final 33-22, made a thumping start to their 2015 campaign. A nine-try, 68-10 victory over Scotland, places them at the top of Pool C, thanks to their try-scoring bonus point.

On Saturday at the Stadio San Michele in Calvisano, they will look to take a step closer to the semi-finals, when they play their next fixture against the youngsters from Argentina Under 20s. The Argentinian side has participated at every tournament since its inception back in 2008, but only once have they made the semi-finals, in 2012 in South Africa. An opening day defeat in Italy against Ireland, makes it extremely unlikely that they will improve on that record this year.

The Kiwis did in fact trail Scotland by 3-10 after 15 minutes of their match, before stepping up their game, and running out comprehensive victors. While the Argentinians were desperately unlucky to go down to the Irish, The South Americans scored the only try of the game, but were beaten by a last minute penalty goal, and were beaten by 16-18.
