PLAYER WRITE-UP
Handré Pollard made his Test debut against Scotland in Port Elizabeth a week after returning to South Africa after his third appearance at the Junior World Championships. He captained the SA Under-20s in in New Zealand in 2014 as they beat the hosts New Zealand twice before losing by one point in the final to England. Pollard has a prodigious boot, is not scared to take on the opposition with ball in hand and played an integral role for the Junior Springboks when they won the JWC on home soil in 2012. Pollard, who made his Vodacom Super Rugby debut earlier in 2014 for the Vodacom Bulls, was named the Junior Player of the Year by the IRB for 2014.
