Augustus nominated for U20 Player of the Tournament
June 16, 2017
Junior Springbok No 8 Juarno Augustus has been named as one of five nominees for the World Rugby U20 Championship Player of the Tournament, the sport’s governing body announced on Friday evening.

Augustus has been a stand-out performer for the SA U20’s 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, up to now. 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 team-mate Gabriel Ibiotye, and New Zealand’s Tiaan Falcon and Will Jordan for the prestigious award.

The Player of the Tournament will be announced on Sunday night 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 between now and 17h30 (SA Time) on Sunday.
