24-06-2023 Daily Rugby Predictions Junior Rugby World Cup 2023 South Africa Vs Georgia

South Africa U20 vs Georgia U20

Hosts South Africa take on Georgia in the second of the Group C matches in the Junior Rugby World Cup. The Junior Springboks are bidding for their second ever title after winning their first in 2012. Both these teams rely mainly on their strong forwards packs especially at scrum time.

The visitors are notorious for getting into arm wrestle type of matches and very seldom send the ball out wide to their wings. If the Springboks can get good ball from the forwards they will look to exploit the Georgians on the wing.

TIP: The Junior Springboks have players like Imad Khan who has represented WP and the Stormers at the highest level and he will be one of the lynch pins from his position of scrumhalf. The other player to watch is Sevens star Masande Mtshali who can be deadly if given any space to work with. For the Georgians their undoubted star is Tornike Kakhoidze who already has a senior test cap to his name. He is a dynamic midfield runner. The bookies have South Africa as favourites and I’m also tipping them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Betway 1.02., Gbets 1.02 and Hollywoodbets 1.02

HEAD TO HEAD STATS

  • The biggest margin of victory between the sides was 28 points.

Latest results for both teams

South Africa beat Wales 47-27 in their last match while Georgia lost 44-17 to France in their last match.

PREDICTION

This group will be one of the toughest with Italy and Argentina also in it so the Springboks will not only want the win but will want the bonus point and a good points differential. The Georgians will play their normal style of kicking away possession and backing their defence to keep the opposition out while the home team will look to get the ball out wide to exploit and space on the wings. The discipline of both sides will be key as they have excellent rolling mauls and any penalties will see these teams kick for the corner to drive. I am predicting a home win by 30 points.
