UNDER-20 CHAMPIONSHIP NEWS: Junior Springbok No.8 Juarno Augustus has been named as one of five nominees for the U-20 Championship Player of the Tournament.

Augustus has been a stand-out performer for the Junior Springboks throughout the tournament thanks to his physicality and ability to score tries, which has earned him six tries in the team's four matches in Tbilisi, Georgia. 

He is currently the joint top try scorer in the competition. 

Augustus touched down twice against France in their opening match of the tournament, with his second try being the vital try to draw the match, while he scored once in each of the matches against Georgia and Argentina, and twice in the semi-final against England.

He will go up against England captain Zach Mercer and his teammate Gabriel Ibiotye, New Zealand's Tiaan Falcon and Will Jordan for the prestigious award. 

The Player of the Tournament will be announced on Sunday following the Final between New Zealand and England. 

Fans can cast their vote for the Player of the Tournament on World Rugby's Facebook page until 17:30 (SA Time; 15.30 GMT) on Sunday, June 18.
