Baby Blacks backline all class

1:39 pm on 15 June 2011

The New Zealand under 20 rugby coach Mark Anscombe has hailed his side's backline as one of the most talented he's ever seen after they scored nine tries in a 92-nil 14 try rout of Wales at the Junior World Championships in Italy.

The Baby Blacks began with a 64-7 drubbing of Italy before this morning's demolition of Wales, and Anscombe says despite being one of the smallest at the tournament his side's backs are capable of shredding any team's defence.

New Zealand are firmly at the top of their group ahead of their final pool game against Argentina on Sunday.
