Lions flyhalf Jordan Hendrikse will make his international sevens debut for South Africa at the HSBC London Sevens this weekend, according to SA Rugby.

The 20-year-old former Junior Springbok player is one of three replacements called up for the penultimate tournament of the series, with Angelo Davids and Sako Makata also joining Neil Powell’s troops in England.

They replace the injured trio of JC Pretorius, Tiaan Pretorius and Dalvon Blood.

Makata last played in Singapore in early April, but picked up a rib injury and was not considered for the trip to France, while Davids will play in the 2022 World Series for the first time, having last played for the Blitzboks in Vancouver in 2021, where he was named in the tournament’s Dream Team.
