SA Under 20 coach Dawie Theron has named 34 players to tour Argentina early next month as the final preparation ahead of this years IRB Junior World Championship. The squad will play two tests against the Argentine under 20 side, as well as a midweek fixture, during their tour which kicks off on 10 April.
