The Springboks host the English in the second of three tests in Johannesburg this afternoon/evening, leading the series 1 – 0 after their victory over the men from up North in Durban last week. The Boks see only one change to the starting line up, while there is a shuffle in the England team after a few injuries.

Pat Lambie gets his chance at fullback following the injury to Zane Kirchner, a move that most expected to happen after Kirchner left the field at half time last weekend. All the combinations get another week to gel together, and we could see a great improvement in the overall game, especially over the full 80 minutes.

The English have lost a South African in their midfield following a facial injury to Brad Barritt, but see a New Zealander come onto the bench in a late change to the team, with Thomas Waldrom potentially making his debut. A big change comes at flyhalf, where Toby Flood gets the nod ahead of Owen Farrell.

South Africa: 15 Pat Lambie, 14 JP Pietersen, 13 Jean de Villiers (captain), 12 Frans Steyn, 11 Bryan Habana, 10 Morné Steyn, 9 François Hougaard, 8 Pierre Spies, 7 Willem Alberts, 6 Marcell Coetzee, 5 Juandré Kruger, 4 Eben Etzebeth, 3 Jannie du Plessis, 2 Bismarck du Plessis, 1 Tendai Mtawarira.

Replacements: 16 Adriaan Strauss, 17 Werner Kruger, 18 Flip van der Merwe, 19 Keegan Daniel, 20 Ruan Pienaar, 21 Wynand Olivier, 22 Bjorn Basson.

England: 15 Ben Foden, 14 Chris Ashton, 13 Jonathan Joseph, 12 Manusamoa Tuilagi, 11 David Strettle, 10 Toby Flood, 9 Ben Youngs, 8 Ben Morgan, 7 Chris Robshaw (captain), 6 Tom Johnson, 5 Geoff Parling, 4 Mouritz Botha, 3 Dan Cole, 2 Dylan Hartley, 1 Joe Marler.

Replacements: 16 Lee Mears, 17 Alex Corbisiero, 18 Tom Palmer, 19 Thomas Waldrom, 20 Lee Dickson, 21 Owen Farrell, 22 Alex Goode.

Referee: Alain Rolland (Ireland)
Assistant referees: Steve Walsh (Australia), Simon McDowell (Ireland)
TMO: Iain Ramage (Scotland)

  • Bokke making great play…opening Habana to be just covered by the cross defense….Habana isolated so had to release from the ground to Bizzy who kocked the pick up after an Eng player got a hand…

    So I take it there should be 72500 people at the stadium then?
