World Rugby U20 Championship pool permutations

The latest from ‘On Top Of The Moon’ takes a look into where the Scotland u20’s side stand, ahead of their crunch pool match with Italy u20, a side whom they defeated earlier in the year in the u20 Six Nations championship.

PREDICTION

Italy are yet to register a win after falling short against both England and Australia so far. Scotland come into this one after a demoralising 44-0 defeat to England too, but having beaten Australia in the first round, I can see the Scots desire carrying them through this one.

Saturday’s encounter with England may have been a disappointing one for Scotland but their match with Italy on Wednesday still gives them the opportunity to do something the national side’s u20s have never previously managed in this tournament’s history – win 2 matches in the pool stages.

Final round fixtures – Wednesday 15th June

3.15 Scotland v Italy (Pool B) – Manchester City Academy Stadium
3.15 Argentina v Japan (Pool C) – AJ Bell Stadium

5.30 Ireland v Georgia (Pool A) – Manchester City Academy Stadium
5.30 New Zealand v Wales (Pool A) – AJ Bell Stadium

7.45 South Africa v France (Pool C) – Manchester City Academy Stadium
7.45 England v Australia (Pool B) – AJ Bell Stadium

Projected table

Based on projected wins for Scotland, Argentina, Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa and England the final overall standings will look something like this:

From a Scotland point of view that would mean a rematch with Australia with South Africa…
