Cape Town - The South African Students team to take on the EP Kings in Port Elizabeth and Namibia in Windhoek has been named.

They will play a friendly against the Eastern Province Kings on June 19 before taking on Namibia in an international fixture on June 23.

The squad will assemble in Port Elizabeth on June 16.

No players from the Varsity Cup winning University of Pretoria’s Tukkies team have been considered, due to a match between Tuks and College Rovers (called the Champions' Challenge) to be played on June 22 at Kings Park (kick-off is 17:00).

North West University’s Joubert Engelbrecht will only play in Windhoek, as he is a member of the SA Barbarians (North) team to face England on June 19 and his place for the match against the Kings will be taken by Howard Mnisi (Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University).

    about the right level of rugby. Wouldnt be fair on the kings to play anyone stronger.

      Luke - 2012-06-11 12:14

    Would love it if the students win! But I think that this game has been setup for the Kings to at least show that they can win a game.

      Luke - 2012-06-11 12:15

      smart money on the Kings winning the First division Currie Cup this season, students will get clapped

    Interesting - no player from University of Pretoria and TUKS won the Varisty Cup but TUKS are playing at kingspark on that day!

      Hansie - 2012-06-11 12:45

      Paul, there is a reason for that. Just read the article.
