Hencus van Wyk will replace the injured Aranos Coetzee. The flankers are Gideon van der Merwe and Sibabalo Qoma, and George Cronje will be wearing the number 8 jersey.

Ruan Pienaar is back in the starting lineup with Dan Kasende on right-wing and Cohen Jasper on fullback.

On the bench are Louis van der Westhuizen, Nqobisizwe Mxoli (Mox), Laurence Victor, Mzwanele Zito, Friedle Olivier, Daniel Maartens, Rewan Kruger and David Brits.
