SA Schools coach Mzwakhe Nkosi has made four changes to his team for Tuesday’s match against Argentina U18 at Paarl Gimnasium.

Wing Mntungwa Mapantsela, scrumhalf Dylan Alexander, flank Siyemukela Ndlovu and lock Connor Evans all come into the starting XV.

‘Our defence was good against Wales, but if we want to be a threat to Argentina, our attack will have to improve,’ said Nkosi.

Meanwhile, Tiaan Pretorius (Paul Roos), Austin ‘AJ’ Johnson (Garsfontein) and Lukanya ‘Boepa’ Vokozela (Rondebosch) have been called up to the SA Schools A squad. They replace Quan Horn (promoted to SA Schools) and the injured duo of Jacques-Louis du Toit and Jordan Hendrikse.

SA Schools beat Wales 22-13 last Friday, while SA Schools A lost 43-19 to France.
