Treu to aid Mjekevu

Lions wing Wandile Mjekevu will train with the Springbok Sevens side in an attempt to sharpen his finishing skills.

Lions coach Dick Muir has asked Sevens coach Paul Treu to take Mjekevu into the camp, although the winger won’t be considered for the Bok Sevens team. Muir wants Treu to help with aspects such as decision making, communication and running off the ball.

The 19-year-old will miss the last three Super 14 matches and is also not available for the last two tournaments of the Sevens Series. He will be with the SA U20 side for the World Championships in Argentina at the time.
