Rugby: Van Heerden brings calmness to Junior Bok squad

# Rugby: When the Junior Springboks open their Under-20 Rugby Championship campaign against New Zealand at the Sunshine Coast Stadium on Thursday, they will rely on the calmness of towering lock JF van Heerden. SA Rugby says Van Heerden, who is 2.01-metres tall, has experience of playing at international level. He starred in Bafana Nhleko’s squad that finished third at the World Rugby U20 Championship in Cape Town last year.
