The Wales U20s arrived in Italy full of hope, that they could finally achieve success at the IRB Junior World Championship, despite a difficult 6-Nations campaign. Instead they find themselves playing Japan Under 20s at the Stadio Luigi Zaffanella, Viadana on Wednesday in their final Pool A fixture, still seeking their first win of the tournament.

Defeats to 6-Nations rivals, France and England, who they beaten in the opening match of the 6-Nations season, have left the Welsh youngsters in third place, ahead of the Japanese on points difference only. What will be as disappointing as anything to the Wales is the fact that they have only managed two tries so far in the tournament.

Japan may have conceded 106 points during defeats to England and France, but they have managed to score just as many tries as the much more experienced Welsh side. However. Wales Under 20s will be clear favourites to finish Pool A on a high note with a victory, which should them into the play-off with fifth to eighth position, leaving the Japanese to play for ninth to twelfth positions. With the side that ultimately finished in twelfth place, being relegated and replace by Georgia in the 2016 tournament in England.
