Fiji U20 ready to take on world stage

The anticipation builds as the Fiji U20 Rugby team gears up for another thrilling campaign at the upcoming World Rugby U20 Championship.

With the pools officially announced yesterday, the tournament is set to take place in South Africa from June 29 to July 19, as the top 12 Under 20 teams meet head-to-head.

Fiji finds itself placed in Pool C, alongside Junior Springboks, who will undoubtedly be looking to make their mark on home soil, along with England and Argentina.

Pool B features the 2023 runners-up Ireland, alongside Australia, Georgia, and Italy. Meanwhile, Pool A has France, New Zealand, Wales, and Spain.

The climax of this prestigious event will see the final showdown taking place at the iconic Cape Town Stadium on July 19.

Prior to the World Rugby U20 Championship, Fiji will first head to New Zealand for the Oceania Rugby U20 Challenge. 

The competition will feature Fiji, Samoa and Tonga, alongside a Moana Pasifika invitational U20s team.

The tournament kicks off on February 27 in Auckland, New Zealand. 

Then the Fiji U20 team will be out for its second outing in the Super Rugby NZ U20.

Set to kick off on March 16, this tournament will see the Fiji U20 squad facing off against the New Zealand Super Rugby U20 teams which includes the Blues, Chiefs, Hurricanes, Crusaders, and Highlanders.

Preparations are well underway as the Fiji U20 team fine-tunes their skills and strategies, with the final squad set to be assembled later this month.

Fiji is poised to make its mark in its 2024 campaign as the squad continues training in Suva.
