Wouldn't be surprised if Georgia beat Ireland as well.


I think England's chances will depend on whether our senior U20s, with AP experience, are made available. The 6N squad haven't looked that good - but they're missing their best 4 ? players - add them back in and it'd make a huge difference.

France might have a say in it this time.


Both Curry's should be available if not touring. Can't see Sale in the AP final, somehow. England will give a game to all the players they take again - is that tournament rules?

Phendulani Buthelezi – Sharks, looseforward
Ben-Jason Dixon – Western Province, lock
Lubabalo Dobela – Free State, flyhalf
Muller du Plessis – Sharks, utility back
Schalk Erasmus – Western Province, hooker
Tyrone Green – Xerox Golden Lions, winger
Jack Hart – Golden Lions, scrumhalf
Lyle Hendricks – Western Province, centre
Daniel Jooste – Western Province, hooker
Cohen Kiewit – Golden Lions, prop
David Kriel – Western Province, winger
Rewan Kruger – Free State, scrumhalf
Gianni Lombard – Golden Lions, fullback
Nathan McBeth - Golden Lions, prop
Salmaan Moerat (captain) – Western Province, lock
Sihle Njezula – Western Province, winger
Ruan Nortje – Blue Bulls, lock
Asenathi Ntlabakanye – Golden Lions, prop
Rikus Pretorius – Western Province, centre
Manuel Rass – Golden Lions, centre
Sazi Sandi – Western Province, prop
Dian Schoonees – Golden Lions, looseforward
Wandisile Simelane – Golden Lions, centre
PJ Steenkamp – Golden Lions, looseforward
Alulutho Tshakweni – Eastern Province, prop
Muller Uys – Western Province, looseforward
Tiaan van der Merwe – Golden Lions, prop
Damian Willemse – Western Province, flyhalf

Willemse will join the Junior Springboks in England for the final tour match, meaning that he will miss the Stormers' clash against the Chiefs at Newlands on May 12, while Du Plessis will fly directly from Singapore to Edinburgh before of their opening match against Scotland.

The only new face in Roux’s squad, which will be led by lock Salmaan Moerat, is former SA Schools prop Nathan McBeth. Apart from McBeth and Willemse, all of the squad members featured in the warm-up matches against Georgia in Stellenbosch, which the Junior Springbok won 55-14 and 48-23 respectively.

https://www.sport24.co.za/Rugby/SuperRugby/stormers-to-lose-willemse-to-junior-boks-20180426

Nathan Mcbeth is an interesting inclusion as he played for Scotland in the u20 6N
Commenting on McBeth's inclusion, Roux said: "Nathan has been in SA Rugby's junior structures for several years having coming through the SA Rugby Youth Weeks and SA Schools team, and he has played with most of the squad members at some point in his career, so it is good to have him the in the group. He also boasts Under-20 international experience after playing for Scotland in the U20 Six Nations, so he knows what to expect."

I,d love some Perpignan tips, as we are going with people who are with the Japanese squad I guess we will be staying where they stay, but any advice re: a nice hotel or restaurant would be most welcome.

I just texted you but the number is from 2010 when I last called you so you may have changed..... my number is still the same as 2004

The Japanese team Hotel is fully booked in Perpignan, so I will need a recommendation if you have one. Mind you... you used to be a poor graduate, I’m not sure I can afford where you stay as a Captain Of Industry.

Moerat to lead Junior Boks to U20 World Champs
April 30, 2018
Salmaan Moerat will lead a Junior Springbok squad featuring seven players who participated in the World Rugby U20 Championship last year, from 30 May to 17 June in the south of France.
Moerat, who established himself as a fine captain for the SA Schools team in 2016, will have the support of Damian Willemse, Wandisile Simelane, Muller Uys, Gianni Lombard, Rewan Kruger and Daniel Jooste, all of whom were members of the 2016 SAU20 squad that won the bronze medal in Georgia.

Adding to this experience, Willemse has been the DHL Stormers’ preferred flyhalf this season, while Moerat also made his Vodacom Super Rugby debut, and utility back Muller du Plessis represented the Springbok Sevens team in the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series.

In total, 22 of the players in Junior Springbok coach Chean Roux’s 28-man squad also have junior international experience having represented the SA Schools or SA Schools A teams in the Under-18 International Series, while every player with the exception of lock Ruan Vermaak – who is recovering from a knee injury – featured in the warm-up matches against Georgia.

“This is a talented squad with solid international experience, and we are confident in their abilities,” said Roux.

“We had to make a few tough calls, especially after the matches against Georgia, but we believe we have a squad worthy of competing against the best U20 teams in the world.

“One can never underestimate the value of playing international rugby at any level, so we are pleased that most of the players have worn the green and gold before for both the Junior Springboks and the SA Schools sides.”

Roux spoke highly of Moerat and said: “Salmaan is a born leader. He led the Western Province U18 Coca-Cola Craven Week team and the SA Schools team, and he did so with distinction.

“He has been equally influential at our training camps since the squad gathered in February, and all of the players have immense respect for him, so he was the natural choice as the captain.”

The Junior Springboks will continue their preparations for the World Rugby U20 Championship with a three-match tour to the UK, following their 48-23 and 55-14 victories against Georgia, who they will face in their opening pool match at the World Rugby U20 Championship.

The SA U20s will meet Scotland in Edinburgh on Friday, 4 May, Wales in Cardiff on Tuesday, 8 May, and England in London on Friday 11 May on tour. They depart for the UK on Monday evening.

The team has been drawn in Pool C at the World Rugby U20 Championship, which runs from 30 May to 17 June. They will meet Georgia in their opening pool match on Wednesday 30 May, and then take on Ireland on Sunday, 3 June, and France on Thursday, 7 June in the pool stages.

Junior Springbok squad for the World Rugby U20 Championship (in alphabetical order):
Zak Burger - Cell C Sharks, scrumhalf
Ben-Jason Dixon - DHL Western Province, lock
Lubabalo Dobela - Toyota Free State, flyhalf
Muller du Plessis - Cell C Sharks, utility back
Schalk Erasmus - DHL Western Province, hooker
Tyrone Green - Xerox Golden Lions, wing
Jack Hart – Xerox Golden Lions, scrumhalf
Lyle Hendricks - DHL Western Province, centre
Daniel Jooste* - DHL Western Province, Hooker
Cohen Kiewit - Xerox Golden Lions, prop
Rewan Kruger* - Toyota Free State, scrumhalf
Gianni Lombard* - Xerox Golden Lions, fullback
Nathan McBeth – Xerox Golden Lions, prop
Salmaan Moerat (capt)* - DHL Western Province, lock
Sihle Njezula - DHL Western Province, wing
Ruan Nortje - Vodacom Blue Bulls, lock
Asenathi Ntlabakanye - Xerox Golden Lions, prop
Rikus Pretorius - DHL Western Province, Centre
Manuel Rass - Xerox Golden Lions, centre
Sazi Sandi - DHL Western Province, Prop
Dian Schoonees - Xerox Golden Lions, looseforward
Wandisile Simelane* - Xerox Golden Lions, centre
PJ Steenkamp - Xerox Golden Lions, looseforward
Alulutho Tshakweni - Eastern Province, prop
Muller Uys* - DHL Western Province, looseforward
Tiaan van der Merwe - Xerox Golden Lions, Prop
Ruan Vermaak - Xerox Golden Lions, lock
Damian Willemse* - DHL Western Province, flyhalf

*denotes 2017 World Rugby U20 Championship player


Unbelievable the jump Muller du Plessis has made thus far since leaving school in December. Settled nicely in the Blits Bokke team and now joined fellow Paarl Gym boys Zak Burger (future Sharks 9) and Muller Uys.

Damian Willemse will be a star player for the Bokkies. He has some real gas outside him and hope the Bokkies play some good running rugby.

The team features a different halfback pairing of flyhalf David Coetzer and scrumhalf Rewan Kruger. Coetzer replaces Lubabalo Dobela, who took a knock to head against Wales, while Wandisile Simelane and Rikus Pretorius will start in the midfield.

The other changes were on the wing where David Kriel comes in for Sihle Njezula, who is among the replacements, and at lock where Ben-Jason Dixon returns to the starting line-up in place of Ruan Nortje after dropping to the bench against Wales due to illness.

12 of the starting 23 from WP and 7 from Golden Lions, seems the future talent is concentrated in those two provinces. Surprised there are so few from the Bulls (only 1 on the bench)

He did in the 6N u20 but he has a Lions contract, and probably wants to play for the Boks eventually.
