Banele Mthenjane (prop, Nelspruit High School), one of three players who also featured for the SA Schools side in 2017, and Lionel April (flyhalf, Hermanus High School) were forced the withdraw from the squad for the Under-18 International Series, which kicks off on Friday.

Their places were taken by Mdletshe, who is from Glenwood High School, and Menze, from Durban High School (DHS). This brings Glenwood’s representation in coach Sean Erasmus’ squad to three, while there are now two players from DHS.

“It’s always tough to lose players before a ball has even been kicked, but unfortunately these things happen and we feel for Banele and Lionel,” said Erasmus, whose team started with their preparations on Sunday in Stellenbosch.

“At the same time, this provides a wonderful opportunity for Thabiso and Lwandile and I’ve been impressed with their zeal and positive attitude.”
