SA 20 coach Dawie Theron has made 10 changes for the third and final match against Argentina U20 at City Park in Cape Town on Saturday.

The Junior Boks have already clinched the series after posting 78-31 and 60-14 victories. The friendly internationals are part of both teams’ preparations for the Junior World Championship to be held in Auckland from 2-22 June.

Several players who started against the Los Pumitas in Stellenbosch on Tuesday were not available, due to the Vodacom Cup semi-finals on Friday.

Theron has retained only five players for the clash on Saturday – scrumhalf JP Smith, flyhalf Jean-Luc du Plessis, centres Dan Kriel and André Esterhuizen, and fullback Jesse Kriel.

The reshuffled pack consists of players who have all participated in the two previous encounters with the visitors, either as part of the starting line-up in Saldanha or as replacements in Stellenbosch.

The friendly international kicks off at 4pm.

Junior Springboks – 15 Jessie Kriel, 14 Sergeal Petersen, 13 Dan Kriel, 12 André Esterhuizen, 11 Duhan van der Merwe, 10 Jean-Luc du Plessis, 9 JP Smith, 8 Aidon Davis, 7 Jean-Luc du Preez, 6 Victor Sekekete, 5 Nicolaas Janse van Rensburg, 4 Abongile Nontonkwane, 3 Wilco Louw, 2 Corniel Els, 1 Pierre Schoeman.
