Junior Bok trials underway

Written by Rob Otto (robdylan)

A large group of Under 20 players has assembled in Stellenbosch this week to take part in trial matches and a training camp, with a view to being selected for Dawie Theron’s 28-man Junior Springbok squad for this year’s World Rugby Junior World Championship. Yes, that’s right. The name “World” now appears twice. It will do so again when we have the World Rugby Rugby World Cup. Marketing geniuses abound, but I digress.

The squad comprises mainly WP and Blue Bulls players (don’t all faint from surprise) but a couple of Sharks boys have managed to sneak in.

Recent Super Rugby debutant Daniel du Preez, who missed out on last year’s tournament due to injury, has been invited, as has twin brother Jean-Luc, who played a starring role in 2014. They are joined by a sextet of players who shone for the Sharks at under 19 level last year; tighthead prop and captain Ruan Kramer, loosehead prop Mzamo Majola, lock Hyron Andrews, number 8 Ayron Schramm, scrumhalf Rowan Gouws and flyhalf Innocent Radebe. Majola, Andrews and Schramm all made thier Vodacom Cup debuts this year, while Gouws and Radebe have both starred in the UKZN Impi Varsity Shield side.

Dan du Preez will not participate in the camp this week due to Super Rugby commitments, but along with Thomas du toit will come strongly into the reckoning when the final squad is named.

Here’s the full squad:
