Bafana Nhleko unleashes the “big guns” for the Junior Springboks match in Argentina

Sprinboks junior coach Bafana Nhleko took out the heavy hitters for his team’s second game of his team’s U20 International Series against Argentina on Wednesday.

Nhleko will immediately appeal to his two leaders, captain George Cronje and vice-captain Jordan Hendrikse, against the South Americans. Cronje started the first-round game against Uruguay on the bench, before being forced to help the Junior Springboks secure the result on the line in the final 20 minutes of their 29-10 victory over Uruguay in the Markötter stadium on Friday.

Vice-captain Hendrikse will make his debut

Hendrikse, however, will make his debut for the Junior Springboks against Argentina as he burns out with the green and gold number 10 on his back. The Breidbach-born opening half recently made his Rainbow Cup debut for the Lions, winning the man of the match award in his first start for the union. He has since established himself at a rapid pace at the senior level and will be foolproof to prove his keen sense at the U20 stage.

Nhleko also gives starts to Jan-Hendrik Wessels and Andre-Hugo Venter, both of whom have senior rugby experience with the Bulls and Stormers respectively. Simon Miller and Corne Weilbach will also feature early in this game after coming off the bench in the Junior Springboks’ opener.
