The South African Rugby Union has confirmed that Rohan Janse van Rensburg will replace his Blue Bulls team mate Jan Serfontein in the South Africa 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 South African Schools last year and also attended the South Africa Under-20s’ previous training camp two weeks ago as a reserve player.
The Junior Springboks travel on Thursday to France where they will defend their JWC title.
The JWC tournament will be held from June 5 to 23 across three venues in France.
Meanwhile, the Junior Springboks wrapped up their on-field preparations with two training sessions on Tuesday in Stellenbosch.
The morning field session was followed by a contact session in the afternoon against the SA President’s XV, who will be in action on Saturday in Stellenbosch against Namibia.
