South Africa (36) vs England (27) – Second Test F/T

The Springboks host the English in the second of three tests in Johannesburg this afternoon/evening, leading the series 1 – 0 after their victory over the men from up North in Durban last week. The Boks see only one change to the starting line up, while there is a shuffle in the England team after a few injuries.

Pat Lambie gets his chance at fullback following the injury to Zane Kirchner, a move that most expected to happen after Kirchner left the field at half time last weekend. All the combinations get another week to gel together, and we could see a great improvement in the overall game, especially over the full 80 minutes.

The English have lost a South African in their midfield following a facial injury to Brad Barritt, but see a New Zealander come onto the bench in a late change to the team, with Thomas Waldrom potentially making his debut. A big change comes at flyhalf, where Toby Flood gets the nod ahead of Owen Farrell.

South Africa: 15 Pat Lambie, 14 JP Pietersen, 13 Jean de Villiers (captain), 12 Frans Steyn, 11 Bryan Habana, 10 Morné Steyn, 9 François Hougaard, 8 Pierre Spies, 7 Willem Alberts, 6 Marcell Coetzee, 5 Juandré Kruger, 4 Eben Etzebeth, 3 Jannie du Plessis, 2 Bismarck du Plessis, 1 Tendai Mtawarira.

Replacements: 16 Adriaan Strauss, 17 Werner Kruger, 18 Flip van der Merwe, 19 Keegan Daniel, 20 Ruan Pienaar, 21 Wynand Olivier, 22 Bjorn Basson.

England: 15 Ben Foden, 14 Chris Ashton, 13 Jonathan Joseph, 12 Manusamoa Tuilagi, 11 David Strettle, 10 Toby Flood, 9 Ben Youngs, 8 Ben Morgan, 7 Chris Robshaw (captain), 6 Tom Johnson, 5 Geoff Parling, 4 Mouritz Botha, 3 Dan Cole, 2 Dylan Hartley, 1 Joe Marler.

Replacements: 16 Lee Mears, 17 Alex Corbisiero, 18 Tom Palmer, 19 Thomas Waldrom, 20 Lee Dickson, 21 Owen Farrell, 22 Alex Goode.
