SARU has confirmed that Rohan Janse van Rensburg will replace Jan Serfontein in the SA U20 squad for the Junior World Championship.

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.
