Highlights: France v South Africa

Undefeated in Pool A, South Africa secured safe passage to the Under-20 Six Nations Summer Series first-place play-off with a 42-27 win over France.

The Junior Springboks knew that even a try or losing bonus-point would be enough for top spot in the group but were in no mood to settle, running in five tries.

Ruan Venter scored a try in each half for Bafana Nhleko’s side, with Suleiman Hartzenburg, Imad Khan and Lukhanyo Vokozela also crossing while France’s efforts came through Connor Sa, Jules Coulon and a brace for Louis Bielle-Biarrey.

France finished third after England secured try and losing bonus points in their fixture with Ireland.
