London - SA Rugby Sevens Academy player, Marco Labuschagne, has joined the Springbok Sevens team in London for this weekend's London Sevens after Tim Agaba was ruled out because of a knee injury he sustained in Paris last weekend.

Agaba will be replaced in the 12-man squad by Sandile Ngcobo, who travelled to Paris as the official reserve player, and Labuschagne will now fill that vacancy in the touring squad.

The 19-year-old Labuschagne, who matriculated from Voortrekker High School in Bethlehem last year, has been with the SA Rugby Sevens Academy in Stellenbosch since the beginning of the year and was extremely happy and proud to get the call-up.

"I am so excited,” said Labuschagne.
