Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer has made a single change to his starting line up to face England in the second test, at Coca Cola Park in Johannesburg on Saturday.
As predicted, Sharks back Patrick Lambie has been elevated from the bench to replace the injured Zane Kirchner at fullback. Lambie will earn his 13th cap and is sure to be a popular selection after impressing off the bench against England in Durban.
With Kirchner and reserve prop Coenie Oosthuizen both withdrawn due to injury, two new faces have been included on the bench; Bulls tight head Werner Kruger will look to earn his 3rd cap from the number 17 jersey, while winger Bjorn Basson comes in as back line reserve in place of Lambie.
South Africa starting line up:
15 Patrick Lambie, 14 JP Pietersen, 13 Jean de Villiers (capt), 12 Francois Steyn, 11 Bryan Habana, 10 Morne Steyn, 9 Francois Hougaard, 8 Pierre Spies, 7 Willem Alberts, 6 Marcell Coetzee, 5 Juandre Kruger, 4 Eben Etzebeth, 3 Jannie du Plessis, 2 Bismarck du Plessis (v/capt), 1 Tendai Mtawarira
16 Adriaan Strauss, 17 Werner Kruger, 18 Flip van der Merwe, 19 Keegan Daniel, 20 Ruan Pienaar, 21 Wynand Olivier, 22 Bjorn Basson
