Doc Jannie du Plessis and Morne Steyn will each earn a 50th Test cap for the Springboks against Australia at Newlands on Saturday afternoon.

Coach Heyneke Meyer has opted for continuity, for the most part, with only two changes to the starting fifteen that faced New Zealand ten days ago. Bismarck du Plessis and Ruan Pienaar have both dropped to the bench, with Adriaan Strauss and Fourie du Preez set to start at hooker and scrumhalf respectively. Jano Vermaak drops out of the match 22 alttogether to make way for du Preez, who was unavailable for the away leg.

Bismarck, who earned a 50th test cap earlier in the year, and Jannie will now be the first pair of brother ever to reach a half century of Springbok caps each.

South Africa:

15 Zane Kirchner, 14 Willie le Roux, 13 JJ Engelbrecht, 12 Jean de Villiers (capt), 11 Bryan Habana, 10 Morne Steyn, 9 dourie du Preez, 8 Duane Vermeulen, 7 Willem Alberts, 6 Francois Louw, 5 Flip van der Merwe, 4 Eben Etzebeth, 3 Jannie du Plessis, 2 Adriaan Strauss, 1 Beast Mtawarira
16 Bismarck du Plessis, 17 Gurthro Steenkamp, 18 Coenie Oosthuizen, 19 Juandre Kruger, 20 Siya Kolisi, 21 Ruan Pienaar, 22 Pat Lambie, 23 Jan Serfontein
