Junior Springbok coach, Dawie Theron has made three changes to his starting lineup to face Australia in tonight’s final pool match at the World Rugby Under-20 Champioship in Calvisano, Italy.

Khanyo Ngcukana who played against Italy in their first match returns on the right wing to replace Grant Hermanus, who moves to the bench and EW Viljoen replace JT Jackson at outside centre.

The final change in the starting lineup sees Sharks flank Dan du Preez drop down to the bench to make way for Jacques Vermeulen.

“We have picked a very competitive side to face the quality Australian outfit. They showed with their two wins against Samoa and Italy that they are a huge threat, especially with the ball in hand, so we will have to work hard to counter their strong points.”

“Our forwards are showing good form and the key for us will be to keep our momentum, reduce the number of errors and to create more opportunities for our backs,” said Theron.

The Junior Springboks are currently joined on log points with Australia in Pool B, but takes the top spot due to a comfortable 32 points difference.

The match starts at 8:30pm and will be televised live on SuperSport.

Junior Springboks:

15 Warrick Gelant 14 Khanyo Ngcukana 13 EW Viljoen 12 Daniel du Plessis 11 Leolin Zas 10 Brendon Thomson 9 Ivan van Zyl 8 Hanro Liebenberg 7 Jean-Luc du Plessis 6 Jacques Vermeulen 5 RG Snyman 4 Jason Jenkins 3 Thomas du Toit 2 Joseph Dweba 1 Ox Nche

Reserves:

16 Jan van der Merwe 17 Mzamo Majola 18 Frans van Wyk 19 Hyron Andrews 20 Dan du Preez 21 Marco Jansen van Vuren 22 Tinus de Beer 23 Grant Hermanus
