Forwards: John Smit (c), Victor Matfield (v/c), Beast Mtawarira, Gurthro Steenkamp, Heinke van der Merwe, Bismarck du Plessis, Chiliboy Ralepelle, Bandise Maku, Jannie du Plessis, Bakkies Botha, Danie Rossouw, Allistair Hargreaves, Andries Bekker, Schalk Burger, Davon Raubenheimer, Heinrich Brussow, Pierre Spies, Ryan Kankowski, Dewald Potgieter, Ashley Johnson.

In news that will certainly get Rob happy, his lovechild(or is that ex lovechild)Ali Hargreaves has earned his call up.
Ricki January has finally been dropped after an extended run of poor form and bad conditioning.
Kimberley gets reason to celebrate as 2 players from Griquas get called up,Im not going to talk about Earl Rose but I am majorly chuffed for Juan de Jong but disapointed for Francois Louw.
Bulls add another 3 players to their Bok list with Heini Adams and the exciting Francois Hougaard and Dewaldt Potgieter selected
Ashley Johnson from the Cheetahs will have reason to smile as his industrious season was rewarded while Jongi Nokwe gets a recall as well as Meyer Bosman returning to the team after debuting at flyhalf during the 2006 EOYT.
Heinke vd Merwe gets called up even though he has been injured all season, Peter de Villiers is on record as being a huge fan of the loosehead prop.Tweet
