New Zealand Under 20 is an age-grade side that provides development opportunities and acts as a testing ground for New Zealand's young, talented players.
The New Zealand Under 20 team replaced the Under 21 and Under 19 teams in 2008, following the IRB's move to a single-tier international age-grade structure. The team continued the dominance of World Championship titles by both those teams, winning four successive titles from 2008 to 2011, and finishing runners up to hosts South Africa in 2012.
