Reports this morning indicate that Jan Serfontein has withdrawn from the Baby Boks squad to join the senior side.
Rugby365.com reports that Serfontein has been replaced by Rohan Janse van Rensburg in the South Africa Under 20 squad, ahead of their defence of the Junior Wolrd Championship.
It is reported that Serfontein joined the training squad in Durban, which concluded yesterday.
Should these reports carry any truth, Serfontein is likely to start in the first test against Italy, joining captain Jean de Villiers in midfield.
