The Junior Springboks will begin their Junior World Championship title defence in France by taking on the USA.

The defending champions have been drawn in a group with the USA, England and hosts France for the tournament which starts on June 5.

Match Day 2 (June 9) will see the SA U20's in action against the powerful outfit of England while yet another appetising clash take place as southern hemisphere rivals New Zealand face Australia in Vannes at 20.45.

Four days later, La Roche-sur-Yon will again be the venue as hosts France take on South Africa at 20:45 in the final pools fixture.

With just 50 days to go until the world's top Under-20 tournament gets underway in north-west France, anticipation is already at fever pitch as Nantes, Vannes and La Roche-sur-Yon get ready to welcome the future stars of world Rugby.

Tickets for many of the matches are already selling very well, and seats at the three venues are sure to become even more desirable over the coming weeks as fans prepare for the tournament which takes place from June 5-23.

The Junior Springboks are currently on tour in Argentina in preparation for the tournament where they will face France, England and USA in Pool A.
