SA Rugby has confirmed three changes to the SA Emerging squad who will defend the IRB Nations Cup in Romania.
Carel Hoffman, Hilton Lobberts and Robert Kruger are all unavailable and will not travel to Bucharest. Their replacements, Ashley Johnson, Francois Prinsloo and Nico du Plessis, have already joined the squad in Newlands where it is training for the upcoming tournament.
A capping ceremony is scheduled for Thursday evening in Tokai and the squad leaves late on Friday for Europe. Field sessions take place daily at SACS High School in Newlands and scrumming sessions at the Hamiltons rugby club, Green Point. All training sessions are open to media and the public.
The capping will take place at no.3 Victoria Close in Tokai. Media who want to attend this function must please RSVP to Rayaan Adriaanse on 082 999 00 22 by no later than 4pm on Wednesday.
The international representative tournament, which features a blend of A-teams from top unions and full test teams from developing unions, will again be played in Bucharest from 11 to 20 June
