Wales Under-20 to face Argentina

8th June 2018

Wales Under-20 will face Argentina on Tuesday, after a narrow victory over Japan secured second place in Pool A of the World Rugby U20 Championship.

Tries from Harri Morgan and Dewi Cross, with eight points from the boot of Cai Evans, was enough for Geraint Lewis' side to seal victory over a determined Japan side, making it two wins from three games in the pool stages.

Five Cardiff Blues players were involved in the victory, with Ben Thomas a late call-up to the starting line-up, following injury to regional team-mate, Ben Jones.

Replacement prop, Rhys Carre, was one of the side's stand-out performers in Perpignan, making impact with ball in-hand and in the scrums.

New Zealand topped Pool A, after a convincing win over Australia, meaning Wales will compete for fifth place in the Championship.

Wales' clash against Argentina will take place in Narbonne on Tuesday (KO 2.00pm)
