Senatla called up to SA ‘A’ squad

PUBLISHED: May 29, 2017

DHL Stormers speedster Seabelo Senatla has been drafted into the SA ‘A’ squad for their two matches against the French Barbarians next month.

The DHL Stormers winger, who was named World Rugby’s Sevens Player of the Year for the 2015/16 season, replaces the Vodacom Bulls’ Springbok wing Jamba Ulengo.

Ulengo, who made his Test debut last year against Wales in Cardiff, will undergo rehabilitation for the next six weeks following advanced patellar tendinosis.

Senatla will join the 26-man squad when they gather in Durban next month. The SA ‘A’ team’s first match against the French Barbarians is on 16 June at the Moses Mabhida Stadium, and a week later, on 23 June, the two sides will clash at Orlando Stadium in Soweto.
