“This is a wonderful stepping stone, not only for us as South Africans but also for any team the U20 Championship it can put you on the map,” said South Africa captain Ernst van Rhyn, one of eight players in the Junior Springboks’ side that finished fourth last year.

“If you perform well here, you have a good chance of getting into your senior national team. For now we are just focused on France and getting a good result. Our main focus is the team, not to impress anyone, we want the team to do well and I think with that the players will grow and get selected for the senior team.”
