CAPE TOWN — SA U20 coach Dawie Theron has confirmed the inclusion of flyhalf Handré Pollard, winger Raymond Rhule and scrumhalf Vian van der Watt to the final squad of the Junior Springboks that will contest the IRB Junior World Championship 2012 to be held from June 4 to June 22.

Pollard will replace Johan Goosen (shoulder injury) and Golden Lions player Van der Watt comes in for Kevin Luiters (knee injury). Free Stater Rhule replaces Dean Hammond, who pulled a hamstring last week.

All three players slotted in well during the Junior Springboks’ final warm-up match against Hamiltons on Tuesday.

“I am confident that all three players will do well. They are very talented and slotted in with ease since they joined us,” Theron said. THE FINAL SA U20 JWC SQUAD
