SA Schools centre Paul Jordaan has been selected in Paul Treu’s squad to compete at the Wellington and LA legs of the IRB Sevens circuit. Jordaan, who matriculated at Grey Kollege only last year, will join the Sharks Academy in mid-year, once his sevens commitments are over.
Also representing the Sharks in the squad is loose forward Lubabalo “Tera” Mtembu, who has fought his way back in after last playing for the Blitzbokke a few months back. Mtembu’s good news, though, is unfortunately not as widespread as we’d like, with fellow Sharks in Mark Richards and Sbura Sithole missing out this time around. The latter is back in Durban, undergoing rehabilitation to an injured knee and should be back on the field in a few weeks’ time.
The squad leave for New Zealand on Friday.
The Springbok Sevens squad to Wellington and Las Vegas:
Boom Prinsloo, Kyle Brown (captain), Frankie Horne, Chris Dry, Lubabalo Mtembu, Paul Delport, Branco du Preez, Renfred Dazel, Pieter Engelbrecht, Bernado Botha, Steven Hunt, Paul Jordaan.Tweet
