There will be little at stake on Wednesday at the Peroni Stadium, Calvisano when Samoa face the host nation Italy Under 20s, in Pool B of the IRB Junior World Championship. Neither side will have entered the tournament with too many expectations, given that the Pool also contains Australia and South Africa U20s. However, both teams may be somewhat disappointed that they have not been more competitive during their opening two fixtures.

Italy. who finished with the Wooden Spoon in the 2015 6_nations, after losing all five matches, have been beaten 5-33 by the Junior Boks, and 15-31 by the Australian youngsters. Their game plan has been somewhat limited, and has been largely confined to a kick and chase game. The Samoa Under 20s opened with a 22-34 loss to Australia, a scoreline that is closer than the actual match was, with the Australians always having things under control. A second loss followed to the Junior Boks, who won 40-8.
