The South African Under-20 men’s side, Amajita, have begun serious training ahead of tournaments in Qatar and Russia.
Amajita leave for the Middle East on Wednesday and take on a Qatar Select side on 10 January 2015 in Doha before flying to St Petersburg, Russia for the Russian Commonwealth tournament that takes place from 15-26 January.

‘I am happy with the team spirit this early. Everyone is raring to go and they are all excited about the upcoming tournaments,’ said Notoane who is also the Under-20 assistant coach.
