Hein Kriek from Paul Roos Gymnasium has again been appointed the SA Schools coach, while Lance Sendin from Hugenote Hoërskool in Wellington will guide the SA Schools A team.

Following DHL Western Province’s remarkable 95-0 victory against Eastern Province in the final match of the Under-18 Coca-Cola Craven Week, 12 players from the Cape side were selected in the SA Schools squad, while the remainder of the squad was made up of players from the Blue Bulls, Golden Lions, Eastern Province, SWD, the Valke and Griquas CD.

Eastern Province flyhalf Curwin Bosch, who was named the Coca-Cola Craven Week player of the year in 2014, was one of four players who retained their places in the squad, with the others being Blue Bulls scrumhalf Embrose Papier wing Andell Loubser and Griquas CD looseforward Cobus Wiese.

The squads will assemble in Cape Town on Sunday 2 August to begin their preparations for the series.

In the first four years of the Under-18 International Series, only England have defeated the SA Schools team – a feat which they achieved in the closing match of last year’s tournament.
