*UPDATE 15 JULY 2021 – A MASSIVE THANKS TO HANNES FROM SCHOOL OF RUGBY WHO SENT US THROUGH THE COMPLETE SQUAD, FINAL SQUAD BELOW

We have been inundated with requests for the list of players that have been selected to the U18 high performance squad but as always with rugby administrators things are shrouded in mystery, we have encountered this frustratingly not only in South Africa but in England as well.

Believe me an article with our thoughts on the matter will be forthcoming sooner rather than later, in our opinion there is an obligation from the Unions to release names to the fans and stakeholders of the game regardless of the circumstances – the boys have been working hard all their lives for this opportunity and deserve to have their hard work acknowledged.

Here is what we know so far:

*This is not a “SA Schools” team, this is an under 18 high performance squad

*An initial squad of 45 or 50 (it varies depending on who you talk to) has been decided upon. This will be reduced to 35 players

*These 35 players will tour Georgia and take part in a 3 test series

*All health and safety protocols are being followed, players are training in pods of 5 and players will not be going back to school
