SA Under-20 coach Eric Sauls on Wednesday made two changes to his starting lineup that suffered a 35-42 defeat against Australia to the team that will play New Zealand in the second semi-final of the 2010 IRB Junior World Championship in Rosario on Thursday.

The changes are both made in the backline where Springbok Sevens back Branco du Preez replace the injured Francois Venter at centre. Venter sustained an ankle injury during Sunday’s Pool C clash in Sante Fe. In the other change, Vodacom Free State utility back Nico Scheepers comes into the side in place of Sampie Mastriet

  • I hope for our sake this is the best XV we can get on the park. Those baby blacks are dangerous.

  • I hope we beat the Baby Blacks but if we don’t then I think the time has come for a new coach. 🙄

  • So if we win its okay and the coach can stay? But when its finals, then you would say the same again about the coach.

    He has been coach of the U20’s for quite some time now and we have not won anything… wereas under Jake, PDV and Loffie we either won or at least made it to the final. 🙄

  • I think the Baby Blacks should steam roll the Baby Bok.

    I think the Bok tight Five look weak (particularly the scrum), and the backs look light weight.

    Make sure you have a look at our Captain Blaydendall (Fly Half) comes with a big reputation. As well as Julian Savea on the wing is pretty special should be the rugby highlight of the weekend.

    The rest of the games look one sided.

    Enjoy Sharks fans….. personally i’m really looking forward to seeing how good Lambie is within his own age group !
