The 45 include 3 recent members of the KZN10 who played for South Africa at the U20 World Championships, namely loose forwards Celimpilo Gumede (DHS) and Sibusiso Sangweni (Kearsney) and scrumhalf Jayden Hendrikse (Glenwood).

Other members of the KZN10 included in the 45-player SA Rugby Academy squad include front-ranker Sphekahle Dube (Maritzburg College) and last year’s outstanding Glenwood flyhalf Jordan Hendrikse – the younger brother of Jayden – centre Rynhardt Jonker (Glenwood).

The squad will be under the direction of Junior Springbok coach Chean Roux.
