Lwazi earns rare test start

The Bok side to take on Wales at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff on Saturday has been announced – featuring an incredible 8 changes to the outfit that faced Italy at the weekend.

Lwazi Mvovo is the big winner, coming in to start at left wing for Bryan Habana, who has had to return to Toulon for club duty. Other foreign-based Boks to fall out of the squad this week are Johan Goosen, Gurthrö Steenkamp and JP Pietersen.

Cornal Hendricks starts for Pietersen at right wing, with Wille le Roux completing an all-new back three as he replaces Goosen. The balance of the backline remains intact, with Pat Lam bie and Cobus Reinach each afforded a third successive start.

Up front, Beast Mtawarira and Bismarck du Plessis return to the starting lineup for Trevor Nyakane and Adriaan Strauss respectively, both of whom will play off the bench. Coenie Oosthuizen at tighthead retains his place, as do the rest of the pack that started in Padova.

On the bench, Damian de Allende comes back into the frame, with Julian Redelinghuys and Nizaam Carr both retained after making their debuts last week.

Springboks: 15 Willie le Roux 14 Cornal Hendricks 13 Jan Serfontein 12 Jean de Villiers (capt) 11 Lwazi Mvovo 10 Pat Lambie 9 Cobus Reinach 8 Duane Vermeulen 7 Teboho Mohoje 6 Marcell Coetzee 5 Victor Matfield 4 Eben Etzebeth 3 Coenie Oosthuizen 2 Bismarck du Plessis 1 Tendai Mtawarira
