The team was created following the IRB's decision to create the Tbilisi Cup, to be held in Tbilisi, Georgia in 2013.
The team consisted of players playing in the First Division (second tier) of the South African domestic Currie Cup competition. First Division players have previously been selected for South African Barbarians teams that played against England during the 2012 mid-year rugby test series.
Previously, an Emerging Springboks team competed in the 2007 and 2008 IRB Nations Cup competitions.
The South Africa President's XV emerged victorious at the 2013 IRB Tbilisi Cup with an undefeated record, beating Uruguay, Emerging Ireland and Georgia. Loose-forward Uzair Cassiem ended joint top try scorer with two tries, while fly-half Carl Bezuidenhout ended third in the points scoring charts with 25 points.
