Boks keep it steady

Heyneke Meyer has named a largely unchanged Bok match 23 for Saturdays test against Ireland in Dublin, with only a single change on the bench.

The coach has kept faith in the side that recorded a famous victory over the All Blacks at Ellis Park in their most recent outing, with the only change being injury enforced. Reserve prop Marcel van der Merwe has not been able to tour due to injury and is replaced by Coenie Oosthuizen in the number 18 jersey.

While doubt has been cast on Oosthuizen’s suitability for a role at tighthead in international rugby, coach Meyer defended his selection, saying “although Julian Redelinghuys was also considered, he’s still new in the team and not familiar with our patterns of play and especially the line-out calls, while Coenie knows the way we play well. Coenie is also in great shape and we know what he can do, especially if he has to make an impact off the bench. It’s good to have him back.

“It’s only the fifth time in what will be the 34th Test since I was appointed as Springbok coach that we’ve been able to select an unchanged starting line-up,” added Meyer.

South Africa: 15 Willie le Roux, 14 Cornal Hendricks, 13 Jan Serfontein, 12 Jean de Villiers (captain), 11 Bryan Habana, 10 Handré Pollard, 9 Francois Hougaard, 8 Duane Vermeulen, 7 Teboho Mohoje, 6 Marcell Coetzee, 5 Victor Matfield, 4 Eben Etzebeth, 3 Jannie du Plessis, 2 Bismarck du Plessis, 1 Tendai Mtawarira.
Replacements: 16 Adriaan Strauss, 17 Trevor Nyakane, 18 Coenie Oosthuizen, 19 Bakkies Botha, 20 Schalk Burger, 21 Cobus Reinach, 22 Pat Lambie, 23 JP Pietersen.
