Du Preez back at 10 for Baby Boks


  • 17 Jun 2013

South Africa U20 have made five changes to their starting line-up for the Junior World Championship semi-final against Wales on Tuesday.

Robert du Preez (pictured) reclaims the No 10 jersey while Handré Pollard moves to inside centre in place of Rohan Janse van Rensburg. Stefan Ungerer is back at scrumhalf ahead of Hanco Venter.

Andrew Beerwinkel will start at loosehead prop in place of Sti Sithole while Luan de Bruin is back at tighthead after missing the match against France because of suspension. His ban of four weeks was set aside following an appeal. Marné Coetzee therefore moves to the bench.

Coetzee is joined by flanker Kwagga Smith, who comes in for the injured Jannes Kirsten, and centre Justin Geduld, who missed the French match because of a slight knee injury.

Baby Boks – 15 Cheslin Kolbe, 14 Luther Obi, 13 Dries Swanepoel, 12 Handré Pollard. 11 Seabelo Senatla, 10 Robert du Preez, 9 Stefan Ungerer, 8 Ruan Steenkamp (c), 7 Jacques du Plessis, 6 Roelof Smit, 5 Dennis Visser, 4 Irné Herbst, 3 Luan de Bruin, 2 Jacques du Toit, 1 Andrew Beerwinkel.
Subs: 16. Michael Willemse, 17 Sti Sithole, 18 Aidon Davis, 19 Kwagga Smith, 20 Percy Williams, 21 Justin Geduld, 22 Jesse Kriel, 23 Marné Coetzee.
