Baby Boks lose Serfontein
SARU has confirmed that Rohan Janse van Rensburg will replace his Blue Bulls team-mate Jan Serfontein in the SA U20 squad for the Junior World Championship.
Serfontein, the IRB Junior Player of the Year in 2012 and standout player of last year’s Junior World Championship tournament, is currently a member of the Springbok training group, which have just completed a training camp in Durban.
Janse van Rensburg represented the SA Schools last year and also attended the SA U20’s previous training camp two weeks ago, as a reserve player.
The Junior Springboks travel on Thursday to France where they will defend their Junior World Championship title. The tournament will be held from 5 to 23 June across three venues in France.
Meanwhile, the Junior Springboks wrapped up their on-field preparations with two training sessions on Tuesday in Stellenboch.
The morning field session was followed by a contact session in the afternoon against the SARU President’s XV, who will be in action on Saturday in Stellenbosch against Namibia.
