This is it – the Tri-Nations decider for South Africa.

After coming back down to earth with a sickening thud last week, Smittie’s boys have it all to do in Hamilton. A win will see them crowned outright champs and that is what they’ll be aiming for. Deep down they’ll know that a draw, or even a narrow loss should be enough, provided they don’t let the All Blacks score four tries.

It’s going to be a tough ask, though, with the team struggling to get settled in the scrum and an All Black team really fired up now that they have a sniff of the trophy themselves.

Kick-off in Hamilton is at 09h35 SA time.

Teams:

New Zealand: 15 Mils Muliaina, 14 Joe Rokocoko, 13 Ma’a Nonu, 12 Stephen Donald, 11 Sitiveni Sivivatu, 10 Dan Carter, 9 Jimmy Cowan, 8 Kieran Read, 7 Richie McCaw (captain), 6 Jerome Kaino, 5 Isaac Ross, 4 Brad Thorn, 3 Owen Franks, 2 Andrew Hore, 1 Tony Woodcock
Replacements: 16 Aled de Malmanche, 17 John Afoa, 18 Adam Thomson, 19 Rodney So’oialo, 20 Brendon Leonard, 21 Isaia Toeava, 22 Cory Jane.

South Africa: 15 Frans Steyn, 14 Odwa Ndungane, 13 Jaque Fourie, 12 Jean de Villiers, 11 Bryan Habana, 10 Morné Steyn, 9 Fourie du Preez, 8 Pierre Spies, 7 Juan Smith, 6 Heinrich Brüssow, 5 Victor Matfield, 4 Bakkies Botha, 3 John Smit (captain), 2 Bismarck du Plessis, 1 Tendai Mtawarira
Replacements: 16 Chiliboy Ralepelle, 17 Jannie du Plessis, 18 Danie Rossouw, 19 Schalk Burger, 20 Ricky Januarie, 21 Adi Jacobs, 22 Ruan Pienaar

Referee: Nigel Owens (Wales)
Assistant referees: Wayne Barnes (England), Stuart Dickinson (Australia)
TMO: George Ayoub (Australia)

  • Hamilton – Schalk Burger has been included in the Springbok starting line-up for the Tri-Nations test match against the All Blacks at the Waikato stadium on Saturday.

    Burger comes in on the flank in the place of Juan Smith who failed a late fitness test on Saturday morning. According to the Springbok team doctor, Craig Roberts, Smith is suffering from a back injury.

    Sharks loose forward Ryan Kankowski will replace Burger on the bench.

  • rugby fan has claimed he witnessed an intoxicated Byron Kelleher being injured in a street brawl after a car chase.

    The incident happened after the former All Black allegedly crashed into another vehicle.

    Kelleher, who now plays for Toulouse in France’s Top 14 competition, was arrested on Friday after an incident in the rugby-mad southern French city.

    He faces up to two months on the sidelines after injuring his shoulder following an alleged scuffle with the damaged car’s owners.

    Toulouse-based newspaper La Depeche du Midi also reported the halfback required hospital treatment for a fractured bone in his face.
