The World Rugby U20 Trophy will return in 2023 after a three-year absence.
While World Rugby is yet to confirm the date and venue, 12 previous editions of the influential age-grade competition saw many young reps stamping their name on the World Stage.
Fiji celebrated a return to the World Rugby U20 Championship for the first time since 2014 in a typically flamboyant fashion.
Inspired by full-back Nabetelevu Turaganivalu and centres Vilimoni Botitu and Ilikena Vudogo, Fiji were irrepressible in attack as they ruthlessly capitalised on basic Samoan errors, of which there were many, to put the two-time champions to the sword, scoring nine tries in a 58-8 win.
Samoa’s lack of patience in attack and high turnover rate hurt them badly and Fiji could even afford to lose a man to the sin-bin in each half as they recorded the biggest win in the history of U20 Trophy finals.
In a match of 16 tries, Manuel Pinto, Nuno Mascarenhas and Duarte Campos each bagged a brace as Portugal maintained their form from the year before to beat Namibia 67-36 and win the bronze medal.
