Wales and Australia Under 20s face off at the Stadio Luigi Zaffanella in Viadana on Saturday, with the winners claiming fifth place in the final rankings at the Junior World Cup, while the losers will be placed sixth. Both sides were disappointed not to have made the semi-finals in the main part of the competition, and their wait for a first title will go on for at least another year.

Having beaten England, the reigning World Champions in the 6-Nations tournament, Wales Under 20s had high hopes of progressing from a Pool that contained their great rivals. However, a first up loss to France was followed by a comprehensive defeat by England. The Welsh did finish the Pool with a win against Japan, who they thrashed by 66-3. They then gave their best performance of the competition against Ireland in the play-off semi-final, leading by 22-0 at half-time, before taking their foot off the pedal and easing through by 22-12.

Australia went into their last Pool match against South Africa with high expectations, having recorded a maximum 10 points in their first two matches. Unable to match the physicality of the Junior Boks, they found themselves battered by 13-46. A comfortable win against Scotland in the play-off, has set up the game against Wales.
