Wales U19’s Travel With Love

The Wales Under 19 side are set to travel to South Africa this week for the IRB Junior World Cup will adopt the new tradition of taking a specially crafted Welsh Love Spoon with them for good luck.

The senior Welsh side became the first team to travel overseas with a Love Spoon when they took one with them to Australia earlier in the season.

The youngest member of that senior party, Ospreys hooker Huw Bennett, was given charge of the memento in Australia and he has passed over the latest Spoon to the Under 19s at the Love Spoon Gallery in Mumbles.

Bennett played in the IRB Junior World Cup prior to graduating into the senior side and knows all about the excitement of tackling the best teenage talent in the world.

Wales open their campaign against Italy at Glenwood High School, Durban, on 27 March. They figure in Pool A with defending champions South Africa and Italy. Their second game will be against France on 31 March before they face Argentina on 4 April. After those matches they will go into the knock-out phase of the tournament.
