It was announced that Framesby Hoërskool will represent South Africa in 2017 at the Sanix World Rugby Youth International. South Africa's representatives have won this tournament five times since 2000 with Glenwood being crowned in 2016 as champions.
The Sanix World Rugby Youth Invitational Tournament is a prestigious international rugby union tournament for 15-a-side youth teams which is held every year during the Golden Week holidays (29 April - 5/6 May) in Fukuoka , Japan. Participation is by invitation only, and the overseas schools selected by their respective unions to represent their country are generally expected to be of a high standard and among the top five in each country. The event is hosted by the Japan Rugby Football Union and supported by various local bodies including the Kyushu RFU, the Sanix Sports Foundation and Munakata City.
Unfortunately winning this competition does not guarantee success in South Africa as Glenwood in 2016 can testify.
