Two changes to Bok starting team

Bok coach Heyneke Meyer has named a largely unchanged starting team for this weekend’s second test against Wales at the Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit.

Bakkies Botha drops out of the pack due to injury, with Flip van der Merwe coming straight in at number 4 to partner Victor Matfield – the latter breaking John Smit’s record to become the most capped Springboks of all time with 112 appearances. Lood de Jager, who made an impressive test debut of the bench in Durban, will reprise that role this week.

The other change to the starting lineup sees Beast Mtawarira again preferred at loose head prop to Gurthro Steenkamp.

A change on the bench sees perennial Meyer favourite Wynand Olivier included in the number 22 jersey, where he replaces the injured Johan Goosen.

Springboks: 15 Willie le Rouz, 14 Cornal Hendricks, 13 JP Pietersen, 12 Jan Serfontein, 11 Bryan Habana, 10 Morne Steyn, 9 Fourie du Preez, 8 Duane Vermeulen, 7 Willem Alberts, 6 Francois Louw, 5 Victor Matfield (captain), 4 Flip van der Merwe, 3 Jannie du Plessis, 2 Bismarck du Plessis, 1 Beast Mtawarira
Subs: 16 Schalk Brits, 17 Gurthro Steenkamp, 18 Coenie Oosthuizen, 19 Lood de Jager, 20 Schalk Burger, 21 Ruan Pienaar, 22 Wynand Olivier, 23 Lwazi Mvovo
