Springbok coach Peter de Villiers has selected his strongest available team for Saturday’s Test against France at Newlands.

A number of players who did not feature in last weekend’s 34-31 victory over Wales in Cardiff have been chosen to face the Six Nations champions.

They are Wynand Olivier, Bryan Habana, Morné Steyn, Pierre Spies, Schalk Burger and Gurthrö Steenkamp. Jean de Villiers, who missed the Welsh Test because of injury, has been included on the bench, alongside Flip van der Merwe, who will be making his Bok debut should he take to the field.
