The Springbok team to face New Zealand for the 90th time shows eight changes from last week.

  • Schalk Burger will captain the team from No 8
  • Francois Louw moves to 7 for Marcell Coetzee (injured)
  • Heinrich Brüssow replaces Louw at 6
  • Lood de Jager replaces Victor Matfield (injured)
  • Vincent Koch joins the bench

This is what Heyneke Meyer had to say:

“Injuries have forced our hand a bit, but we’ve stuck with our planned rotational policy on the bench and it will be great to see what Heinrich, Vincent and Flip can do.

“The breakdown battle will again be huge and it will be good to see Heinrich and Francois play together. They are versatile players and I am convinced they will combine perfectly.
