New Zealand’s under20 player Julian Savea was recently honoured as the International Rugby Board’s Junior Player of the Year.
Savea was part of the victorious New Zealand under20 side who won a third successive IRB Junior World Championship title with a 62-17 defeat of Australia at the Estadio El Coloso del Parque in Rosario, Argentina.
“I feel pretty stoked,”said Savea. “Once again just credit to the boys as without them I wouldn’t be here. I enjoyed the game tonight, it was great, we got up and played and I think the boys just capitalised on our opportunities more.”
