Eire booked their spot within the World Rugby U20 Championship remaining after thundering to victory towards the Junior Boks within the semi-final at Athlone Stadium on Sunday.

A dominant second-half show from Eire secured a 31-12 win to shut the curtains on a forgettable Junior Boks marketing campaign.

After valiantly protecting waves of Bok assault at bay in an in any other case scoreless first half, a late yellow card to alternative lock Jannes Potgieter opened the door for Eire and winger James Nicholson sprinted by way of it to offer the guests a 7-0 lead at half time.

Although Jean Smith missed a pair of pictures at purpose, South Africa struck within the third quarter with a scintillating counter-attack capped off by scrumhalf Imad Khan, however Eire shifted gears as No 8 Brian Gleeson crashed over, Nicholson scored a second and alternative again Sam Berman dotted down.

A comfort attempt from lock Coetzee le Roux was all to indicate for the Boks within the closing minutes as Eire completed well-deserved victors.
