Moody at centre against the All Blacks

Moody at centre against the All Blacks

Jake White does have plans to shift to Canan Moodie to outside centre for the Bulls, but Rienaber will pre-empt Jake by using the warmup against the All Blacks to blood Moodie in the 13 jersey.

He will be partnered by Andre Esterhuizen in the midfield, with Manie Libbok at 10 and Damian Willemse at 15. Siya Kolisi will get more game time with Trevor Nyakane, Eben Etzebeth, Faf de Klerk, Cobus Reinach, Kurt-Lee Arendse and Makazole Mapimpi also featuring in the squad.

This is the last warmup for both teams before the Boks take on Scotland in their all important first WC game on 10 September. The coaches and players on both sides will want to see a good run without picking up any serious injuries.

Springboks – 15 Damian Willemse, 14 Kurt-Lee Arendse, 13 Canan Moodie, 12 Andre Esterhuizen, 11 Makazole Mapimpi, 10 Manie Libbok, 9 Faf de Klerk, 8 Duane Vermeulen, 7 Pieter-Steph du Toit, 6 Siya Kolisi (c), 5 Franco Mostert, 4 Eben Etzebeth, 3 Frans Malherbe, 2 Bongi Mbonambi, 1 Steven Kitshoff.
Subs: 16 Malcolm Marx, 17 Ox Nche, 18 Trevor Nyakane, 19 Jean Kleyn, 20 RG Snyman, 21 Marco van Staden, 22 Cobus Reinach, 23 Willie le Roux.
