Brüssow starts as A-team come out to play

The Springbok team to face the Wallabies in Durban this Saturday has been announced and there are a few surprises in the starting line-up, first being that Heinrich Brüssow has been selected in the starting fifteen.

He will compete in the loose trio with Danie Rossouw and Pierre Spies, in a mobile yet aggressive set of loosies. The pack is as we all expected with Beast Mtawarira and Jannie Du Plessis packing down either side of John Smit in the front row, with Bakkies Botha and Victor Matfield locking in behind them.

The backline should show a massive improvement from the previous outings, with Fourie du Preez back in the scrumhalf jersey, combining with Butch James to make up the half backs. The centres are the best South Africa have, in Jean de Villiers and Jacque Fourie, and with wingers like Bryan Habana and JP Pietersen outside them, this backline is looking fantastic.

Frans Steyn completes the starting fifteen, back in the team after an extended period where different fullbacks were tried to no great effect.

The bench is much stronger as well with Bismarck du Plessis and Gurthro Steenkamp ready to make an impact in the game, with Gerhard Mostert and Jean Deysel completing the forwards on the bench. Francois Hougaard, Morne Steyn and Gio Aplon are covering the backs for this game.

The team: 15. Frans Steyn, 14. JP Pietersen, 13. Jacque Fourie, 12. Jean de Villiers, 11. Bryan Habana, 10. Butch James, 9. Fourie du Preez, 8. Pierre Spies, 7. Danie Rossouw, 6. Heinrich Brüssow, 5. Victor Matfield, 4. Bakkies Botha, 3. Jannie du Plessis, 2. John Smit (Capt), 1. Beast Mtawarira.

Reserves: 16. Bismarck du Plessis, 17. Guthro Steenkamp, 18. Gerhard Mostert, 19. Jean Deysel, 20. Francois Hougaard, 21. Morne Steyn, 22. Gio Aplon.
