Cobus Reinach will start a test for the first time as Bok coach Heyneke Mayer has made five changes to his starting line-up for Saturday’s clash against England.

In a move sure to impress readers of this site, Meyer has opted to start Sharks players ahead of many of the non-Sharks who delivered lukewarm performances in Dublin last week. Reinach replaces Francois Hougaard, who did his reputation much harm in the Irish captial, while Pat Lambie and JP Pietersen come in for Handre Pollard and Cornal Hendricks respectively.

Up front, Schalk Burger replaces Oupa Mohoje at blindside flank, with Adriaan Strauss, whose yellow card provde costly, bizarrely rewarded with a start ahead of Bismarck du Plessis.

South Africa: 15 Wille le Roux, 14 JP Pietersen, 13 Jan Serfontein, 12 Jean de Villiers (capt), 11 Bryan Habana, 10 Pat Lambie, 9 Cobus Reinach, 8 Duane Vermeulen, 7 Schalk Burger, 6 Marcell Coetzee, 5 Victor Matfield, 4 Eben Etzebeth, 3 Jannie du Plessis, 2 Adriaan Strauss, 1 Tendai Mtawarira
Subs: 16 Bismarck du Plessis, 17 Trevor Nyakane, 18 Coenie Oosthuizen, 19 Bakkies Botha, 20 Teboho Mohoje, 21 Francois Hougaard, 22 Handre Pollard, 23 Cornal Hendricks

  • Awesome for Reinach! Well deserved! And Patches too.. Not often that I agree with HM selections, but this week gives new hope. Just find it strange to drop Bissie for Strauss? :???:

  • I’m obviously happy with the backline replacements. I don’t mind Adriaan starting ahead of Bissie to be honest. Adriaan’s card was regrettable but not malicious in my opinion. More a case of mistiming. On another day it may just have been a penalty. I don’t think Mohoje did too badly, he could have probably retained his spot but he may work well as an impact sub.

  • Interesting that 1 bad game leads to so many changes. Lets hope the forwards man up so we can how Reinach and Lambie fare. If they constantly on back foot all they will be able to do is kick

  • Very happy for Cobus and Pat, and extremely happy that JPP is picked at wing, even if 13 is a weakness for the Boks at the moment

  • Not bad. Just cant understand how he picks Chris Farley over over Bismarck. Starting JPP and Schalk is a good call I think. Congrats to Reinach!!

  • Given du Plessis’ general poor discipline against Ireland (despite the frog :x ) it does kind of make sense to bench him. Strauss should be fine, he’ll have learned from his :?: mistake :?:

  • It snowed all night in Colorado… first real snow of the year for them. Now I’m happy about two things. This is one game my Mom has to save for me. Hope Cobus and Lambie has a blinder.

  • It’s probably important to note that, in his press conference today, HM made it clear that they had decided that these guys would all get a start in one of the first two tests…so we probably shouldn’t read too much into the number of changes. I’m looking forward to seeing how these guys go on Saturday…

  • @pastorshark (Comment 28) : I hope the changes were pre-planned. It would be harsh if Pollard was dropped after one mediocre performance against Ireland, particularly given the poor service he received, and wouldn’t be great for his confidence. Nevertheless, I hope Pat and Cobus have great games.

    Lambie is the one who needs confidence!

    I hope Reinach and Lambie play out of their skins. Reinach mustn’t want to do his own thing a lot of the time and hopefully Pat manages as close to 100% kicking to the poles as possible.

    I haven’t played SuperBru in about 4 years so I’ve completely lost track.
