Hosts Ireland's dream of winning the U-19 World crown is over after they lost 31-5 to South Africa in front of nearly 10,000 supporters at Ravenhill.

South Africa produced a clinical display of forward power to secure a bonus point by scoring five tries and with it, a place in the semi finals. Earlier, New Zealand outclassed England 34-13 at Ravenhill to finish top of Division A. The result means England can finish fifth at best.

Defending champions Australia produced a powerful second half performance against France to secure their semi final place with a 30-11 win. France can now finish no higher than fifth.

The surprise team in the top four is Wales, who enjoyed a 29-0 victory over Argentina.

Samoa recorded their first win of the tournament, defeating Japan 28-12 at Deramore Park, the home of Belfast Harlequins, while Fiji grabbed a shock 25-23 victory over Scotland at Shaw's Bridge.
