Hendrikse starts for the Boks

Jaden Hendrikse has been elevated to start for the Boks next to Handre Pollard with Faf de Klerk playing from the bench. PSDT is back in his 7 jersey with Franco Mostert moving down to the bench. Inexplicably Ox has also been dropped for Trevor Nyakane who did not look very comfortable at scrum time (at tight head though).

The rest of the team and squad that played in the first test against Wales will return for the decider.


Brave selections by Nienaber

Often a brave decision is just a stupid decision that paid off regardless. Jacques Nienaber will know just after 7 pm on Saturday which it was.

I am very glad for guys like Andre Esterhuizen and Marcell Coetzee to get another chance in a Bok jersey. Likewise very stoked for Ntuthuko Mchunu and Grant Williams who may run out as Boks later in the game.
