The South Africa Under-20 training squad has assembled in Johannesburg to complete their final preparations for their three week tour to Argentina.

The 34-player squad were kitted out on Sunday and had their first training session on Monday at St. Stithians College in Bryanston, Johannesburg.

Two more field sessions are planned for Tuesday before the team travels to Buenos Aires from the OR International Airport on Wednesday.

Coach Dawie Theron’s squad will play their first tour match on Saturday, 13 April against an Argentina U20 XV in Corrientes. This will be followed by two clashes against the Argentina U20’s on 16 April (Corrientes) and 21 April (Buenos Aires) respectively.

The squad returns home on April 23 and the final SA U20 JWC squad will be named on 26 April.

Five squad members players will be in action in the Varsity Cup final on Monday evening at Stellenbosch and they will join their team mates on Tuesday morning in Johannesburg. The five players are Handré Pollard, Marvin Orie (Tukkies), Jurie van Vuuren, JP Lewis and Freddie Kirsten (Maties).

The Vodacom Bulls’ JWC winning centre Jan Serfontein and Southern Kings teenage wing Sergeal Petersen were not considered for the tour because of Vodacom Super Rugby commitments.

Also included in the squad are Springbok Sevens players Seabelo Senatla and Justin Geduld, both members of the Blitzbokke who won the Tokyo Sevens tournament last weekend.
