Two Sharks youngsters have made the Junior Springbok starting line-up for tomorrow’s match against the Varsity Cup Dream Team in Stellenbosch, with two more included on the bench.

Daniel du Preez, who made his Super Rugby debut for the franchise this season (but missed out on last year’s Junior World Championship due to injury) start at blindside flank, with young tighthead Ruan Kramer named in the number 3 jersey. Kramer, a product of Grey College in Bloemfontein, captained the Sharks at under 19 level last year.

The other du Preez twin, flanker Jean-Luc, will play off the bench, as will loosehead prop Mzamo Majola. Another young Shar, flyhalf Innocent Radebe, will start for the Varsity cup side.

15. Warrick Gelant (Vodacom Blue Bulls)
14. Kanyo Ngcukana (DHL Western Province)
13. JT Jackson (Vodacom Blue Bulls)
12. Daniel du Plessis (DHL Western Province)

3. Ruan Kramer (Cell C Sharks)
2. Joseph Dweba (Toyota Free State Cheetahs)
1. Ox Nche (Toyota Free State Cheetahs)

Replacements:
16. Mzamo Majola (Cell C Sharks)
17. Jan van der Merwe (Vodacom Blue Bulls)

  • This game should be played in Bloemfontein, UOFS won the Varsity Cup, they should have the rights to host the game.

  • @Zibbie (Comment 13) : Oh well, more for you to use during SR. Hope the junior boks have a good run again this year many awesome talents discovered during last years. Bulls and Stormers seem to be the biggest contributors, why I wonder? Do we not have strong enough candidates in our breeding programs/junior pools?

  • Hopefully the Lions can do some shopping and buy a few of these players .. shocking to have only 1 player on the bench

  • @coolfusion (Comment 14) : Because the Bulls and WP contract triple the amount of juniors that the Sharks do, every year.
