Janse van Rensburg confirmed in SA U20 JWC squad


The South African Rugby Union has confirmed that Rohan Janse van Rensburg will replace his Vodacom Blue Bulls team mate Jan Serfontein in the SA Under-20 squad for the Junior World Championship (JWC).

Serfontein, the IRB Junior Player of the Year in 2012 and standout player of last year’s JWC 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 Under-20’s previous training camp two weeks ago, as a reserve player.

The Junior Springboks travel to France where they will defend their JWC title. The JWC 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. – Saru
