Matches for next year's Junior Rugby World Cup will be spread across three Auckland stadiums, with Eden Park to host the final.

The seventh edition of the under-20 tournament will see matches played at North Harbour Stadium and Pukekohe Stadium during the pool stages and semi-finals next June.

New Zealand, who are aiming to win back the title they've won four times before, have been drawn to meet South Africa in pool play, along with Scotland and Samoa.

Defending champions England will face traditional rivals Australia, Argentina and Italy in Pool A, while the 2013 runners-up Wales face encounters with France, Ireland and Fiji in Pool B.
