SA Schools and Free State Cheetahs U18 captain and centre William Small-Smith will lead the side which include the successful Cheetahs Coca-Cola U18 Craven Week halfback combination of scrumhalf Kevin Luiters and flyhalf Johan Goosen.

In the forwards, the Free State Cheetahs U18 No 8 Neill Jordaan will partner WP U18 flanker Sikumbuzo Notshe and the Boland U18s’ Wian Liebenberg as the loose-trio combination.

Ruan Botha (Valke U18) and Ruan Venter (Golden Lions U18) will form the lock duo. Western Province U18 Steven Kitshoff, Blue Bulls U18 hooker Justin van Wyk and Border Bulldogs U18 prop Allan Dell will team up as the front row trio.
