first_imgSunday Jun 19, 2011 Junior World Championship – Match highlights from Day 3 Day three of the Junior World Championship ended in drama for some, as the fate of the semi finalists was decided late in the day, with points scored proving the difference between a few of the sides. Here are highlights from four of the games.The Baby Blacks of New Zealandcontinued their fine form as they powered to a 48-15 win over Argentina, making it 18 consecutive wins for the defending champions. While Argentina were looking good at one stage, a clinical second half proved the difference. Englandtop Pool C as they got the better of South Africain a game that at one stage looked as though it could have gone either way. Unforced errors from the Baby Boks and an incredible work ethic from England on defence were two key factors in the game. England took their chances, while South Africa struggled to finish thanks to more than a few excellent try saving tackles, two from the second row.As was seen here a few days ago, Walestook a serious hiding at the hands of New Zealand in their previous pool meeting. This time out they got things together though and punished Italyslack of fire power, winning the game convincingly 56-6. Australias meeting with Francewas always going to prove vital to the layout of the semi finals, and it was France who threw a spanner in the works by reaching their first ever semi finals in the tournament, beating the junior Wallabies 31-25, effectively knocking out South Africa in the process, who finished equal on log points.What that all means is that France will meet rivals England on Wednesday 22 June, while New Zealand will face Australia, who were the best runner up team across the three pools. That game is a repeat of last years final, and will also be on Wednesday, also at the Stadio Comunlae di Monigo.Elsewhere – in games that arent featured here Irelandgot their first win of the tournament as they beat Scotland30-13, while Fijibeat Tonga36-18.
