Japan and Portugal will contest the World Rugby U20 Trophy 2019 final on Sunday after completing the pool stages unbeaten and with maximum points.

The two sides met in the title decider two years ago in the Uruguayan capital Montevideo, when the match was brought to a premature conclusion due to thunderstorms. Japan were leading 14-3 at the time and crowned champions as a result, earning promotion to the World Rugby U20 Championship in 2018.

The action continues with the rankings matches on Sunday, with the fifth place play-off between Canada and Kenya, before Uruguay and Tonga battle for the bronze medal. Hosts Brazil will then tackle Hong Kong in the seventh place play-off, before Portugal and Japan take to the field at 1am Kenya time in the final.
