The Baby Boks were left stunned by the audacity of Wales lock Dafydd Jenkins during a stoppage in play during the Summer Series U20 game.


Jenkins walked up to the South African under-20 huddle and grabbed a water bottle from under their noses, causing a stir as the junior Boks quickly realised what was happening.

The Welsh second rower’s act had South African sports writer Derek Alberts stunned, who wrote “Can honestly say I’ve never seen this before”, while BJ Botha also chimed in with a laughing emoji over the ‘mind games’.

The South African U20 side completed a comprehensive 47-27 win over Wales in the finale which completed an undefeated tournament in Italy, with four wins from four.

Junior Springbok captain Sacha Mngomezulu said afterwards playing in the U20 Summer Series was a dream come true for him and the team.


“The boys worked extremely hard and they deserve this,” said Mngomezulu.

“Credit must also go to the coaches who made us work hard and put in such a good effort for us to be ready.

“It’s an amazing feeling standing here unbeaten after four games. Not too long ago, we didn’t even play rugby, so credit to World Rugby and the Six Nations for staging this excellent tournament.

“They allowed the boys to create life long memories.”
