The Springbok team to face Argentina in the second Rugby Championship game this weekend has been announced, with one injury enforced change, one bench swop and one positional change.
The backline is unchanged with the injury that kept Bryan Habana on crutches for a while clearing in time for him to take the field. Ruan Pienaar can feel hard done by for not being rewarded with a start following a good showing from the bench last week.
Amongst the forwards, Adriaan Strauss replaces the injured Bismarck du Plessis, as expected, while there is also a loose trio shuffle, with Keegan Daniel relegated to the bench in favour of Jacques Potgieter, who takes over on the flank while Willem Alberts moves to the back of the scrum.
On the bench, Tiaan Liebenberg gets the nod ahead of Craig Burden to play second hooker, while the rest of the bench remains unchanged.
South Africa: 15 Zane Kirchner; 14 Bryan Habana, 13 Jean de Villiers (captain), 12 Francois Steyn, 11 Lwazi Mvovo, 10 Morne Steyn, 9 Francois Hougaard, 8 Willem Alberts, 7 Jacques Potgieter, 6 Marcell Coetzee, 5 Andries Bekker, 4 Eben Etzebeth, 3 Jannie du Plessis, 2 Adriaan Strauss, 1 Tendai Mtawarira
