Wales Under-20s captain Ellis Jenkins has hailed his side after a "special" win over South Africa at the IRB Junior World Championship.

Wales had trailed the defending champions 17-11 heading into the dying minutes at Stade de la Rabine.

However Ashley Evans dived over in the corner and Sam Davies nailed the conversion as Wales snatched a dramatic 18-17 victory.

"It's an unbelievable feeling and all the boys deserve huge credit for putting in such fantastic performances," said Jenkins, who scored for Wales during the second half in Vannes.

Challenge

"To be six points down and then to come back on virtually the last kick of the game was a very special way to get the result.

"Our scrum against Argentina and South Africa has been fantastic and I'm proud of all of our front five for what they did.

"That platform allowed our half backs to keep to our game plan and put together some good attacks.

"We know the final is going to be huge but it's a challenge we are really looking forward to."
