Dawie Theron has made four changes to his SA U20 team to face Fiji in the 5th-place play-off at the Junior World Champs in Treviso on Sunday.
All changes are made to the pack as head coach Theron has selected a new front row of props Jon Roy Jenkinson and Juan Schoeman, and hooker Bongi Mbonambi. Flanker Nizaam Carr also finds a starting spot with Francois Kleinhans dropped to the bench.
This is arguably the run-on side that should’ve faced England in the final group fixture last weekend, one they lost 26-20 which cost them a spot in the semi-finals. The Baby Boks will play their last tournament game at 14:00 on Sunday.
Baby Boks – 15 Ulrich Beyers, 14 Tshotsho Mbovane, 13 Jaco Taute, 12 Francois Venter, 11 Wandile Mjekevu, 10 Johan Goosen, 9 Pieter Rademan, 8 Arno Botha (c), 7 Cornell du Preez, 6 Nizaam Carr, 5 Eben Etzebeth, 4 Jean Cook, 3 Jon Roy Jenkinson, 2 Bongi Mbonambi, 1 Juan Schoeman.
Subs: 16 Michael van Vuuren, 17 Nick Schonert, 18 Carl Wegner, 19 Francois Kleinhans, 20 Lohan Jacobs, 21 Paul Jordaan, 22 Courtnall Skosan.
