Vannes - According to Die Beeld’s website, Springboks Sevens coach Paul Treu endures a tense wait to see if two of his star players playing at the 2013 IRB Junior World Championship (JWC) come through unscathed to join up with squad for the Sevens Rugby World Cup in Russia.

Dawie Theron, coach of the South African under-20 rugby team, has confirmed Cheslin Kolbe and Seabelo Senatla will play in the team’s final game at the 2013 JWC.

The pair will play in the Junior Springboks’ third place play-off against the All Blacks in Vannes, before joining up with the Blitzbokke in Russia.

"There was a request that we manage Cheslin and Seabelo's workload," said Theron.

Despite the Baby Boks losing against Wales in the semi-final, Theron was determined to select the two players to maintain consistency in selection and to ensure the best possible team, and said he had additional motivation as they were playing against the All Blacks.

"It's definitely a test of character because every player wants to measure himself against the All Blacks.

"We see the game as a final," said Theron.

England and Wales face each other in the 2013 JWC final after defeating the All Blacks and the Springboks respectively in the semi-finals.
