Consistency for Heyneke

Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer has gone for consistency in his selection for this weekend’s clash against the All Blacks in New Zealand, making only two changes from the team that went down to the Aussies last week.

Flip van der Merwe comes into the starting line-up to replace the suspended Eben Etzebeth while Marcell Coetzee takes a break and makes way for Francois Louw.

It is amongst the backs that we see the consistent selections, the consistently kak selection of Morne Steyn ahead of Johan Goosen and the persistent selection of Zane Kirchner at fullback ahead of a Pat Lambie that will soon equal the record for the most caps coming off the bench!

On the bench, we see a distinct lack of Frans Malherbe while Dean Greyling will earn yet another cap, while there is a return to the match 22 for Andries Bekker and Juan de Jongh while Lwazi Mvovo falls out altogether.

South Africa: 15 Zane Kirchner, 14 Bryan Habana, 13 Jean de Villiers (captain), 12 Frans Steyn, 11 Francois Hougaard, 10 Morne Steyn, 9 Ruan Pienaar, 8 Duane Vermeulen, 7 Willem Alberts, 6 Francois Louw, 5 Juandre Kruger, 4 Flip van der Merwe, 3 Jannie du Plessis, 2 Andriaan Strauss, 1 Tendai Mtwarira.

Substitutes: 16 Tiaan Liebenberg, 17 Dean Greyling, 18-Andries Bekker, 19 Marcell Coetzee, 20 Johan Goosen, 21 Juan de Jongh, 22 Pat Lambie.
