Sharks halfback for Baby Boks

SA Under 20 coach Dawie Theron has pulled something of a shock selection, in naming Sharks flyhalf Rob du Preez at number 10 for his side’s World Championship opener against the USA tomorrow.

It was widely anticipated that Bulls wünderkind Handre Pollard would wear the flyhalf jersey, given his excellence in the position last year (whilst still at school), but it may be that Theron wants to give du Preez a run against lesser opposition and may indeed turn to Pollard for the key pool decider, against England on Sunday. That said, Pollard’s inclusion in the side at inside center might hint at a different plan altogether.

Du Preez will be paired with another Shark, in scrumhalf Stefan Ungerer, while the other two Durban boys in the squad, scrumhalf Hanco Venter and prop Marne Coetzee, will be on the bench.

Bulls utility forward Ruan Steenkamp captains the team from number 8.
