September 17, 2013
SARU has confirmed a 14-man Emerging Sevens squad to participate in the Nashua Middelburg Sevens, which will be staged on Friday 20 and Saturday 21 September.

This two-day tournament is the traditional season warm-up for the Springbok Sevens training group.

The squad for the weekend’s event also sees a number of exciting youngsters who will be involved alongside a few seasoned South African internationals.

The squad include a couple of newcomers who have been training with the wider Springbok Sevens training group at their base in Stellenbosch.

They are Vodacom Blue Bulls scrumhalf André Warner and MTN Golden Lions looseforward Janneman Stander.

Furthermore, there is also a return to the Emerging Sevens squad for livewire Golden Lions flanker Kwagga Smith, who represented the Junior Springboks at the 2013 IRB Junior World Championship in France.

Wales and Zimbabwe are regulars at the event and they should again provide the Emerging Sevens team with quality opposition. Botswana is another international side that will be in action alongside several provincial Sevens selections.

The Emerging Sevens team will arrive in Middelburg on Wednesday.

The team will be coached by Vuyo Zangqa and Neil Powell.
