It’s the final round of this three match series, the Springboks already have the series in the bag and will look to build on their successful start to the 2017 season.

Allister Coetzee has gone with more of the same for this dead rubber, making only four changes in a bid to keep the momentum and secretly work on that win ratio of his. Jesse Kriel is back in midfield while Francois Hougaard gets a chance to start. Hougaard looked good when coming off the bench but will do well to keep up the example set by Ross Cronje so far this season.

Jean-Luc du Preez gets his first start after playing most of the second test. His inclusion opens a bench spot for Jaco Kriel who should explode onto the scene in the second half. Lastly, there is debutant Ruan Dreyer, who has been immense in Super Rugby, to have a go at making the selectors’ job a little tougher.

More of the same on the team sheet means that we should expect more of the same from the team. After the better alround performance in the second test, we can only really ask of them to continue the trend in this test. To do everything that little bit better would really cap off this series as a success.

Late news from the Bok camp is that Warren Whiteley has picked up a groin injury and has been withdrawn. Eben Etzebeth, as vice captian, will lead the side. Jaco Kriel jumps into the starting line-up with Jean-Luc du Preez shifting to 8. Lood de Jager comes onto the bench with Pieter-Steph du Toit the loose forward cover the evening.

South Africa: 15 Andries Coetzee, 14 Raymond Rhule, 13 Jesse Kriel, 12 Jan Serfontein, 11 Courtnall Skosan, 10 Elton Jantjies, 9 Francois Hougaard, 8 Jean-Luc du Preez, 7 Jaco Kriel 6 Siya Kolisi, 5 Francois Mostert, 4 Eben Etzebeth, 3 Ruan Dreyer, 2 Malcolm Marx, 1 Tendai Mtawarira.
Replacements: 16 Bongi Mbonambi, 17 Steven Kitshoff, 18 Coenie Oosthuizen, 19 Pieter-Steph du Toit, 20 Lood de Jager, 21 Rudy Paige, 22 Frans Steyn, 23 Dillyn Leyds.

France: 15 Brice Dulin, 14 Nans Ducuing, 13 Damian Penaud, 12 Gaël Fickou, 11 Virimi Vakatawa. 10 Jules Plisson, 9 Baptiste Serin, 8 Louis Picamoles, 7 Kevin Gourdon, 6 Yacouba Camara, 5 Romain Taofifenua, 4 Yoann Maestri, 3 Rabah Slimani, 2 Guilhem Guirado (captain), 1 Jefferson Poirot.
Replacements: 16 Clément Maynadier, 17 Xavier Chiocci, 18 Uini Atonio, 19 Paul Jedrasiak, 20 Loann Goujon, 21 Maxime Machenaud, 22 François Trinh-Duc, 23 Vincent Rattez.

  • Warren Whiteley withdrawn from team due to a groin injury.

    Eben Etzebeth leads the team. Jaco Kriel comes into the starting line-up with Jean-Luc du Preez moving to 8. Lood de Jager comes onto the bench with PSdT seemingly the only other loose forward cover.

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 2) : A bit of a weird move, Kolisi is more a 8 JL is a 7 so not sure what the thinking is from the Bok camp.

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 2) : As long as JLDP is only used at 8 in scrums for extra power, and they let play his normal game which is blindside. Kriel should actually be very good at performing WW’s linking role in the trio.

  • Lucky penalty for the Boks…Kitshoff should have been penalised there…

  • Hougaard not quite living up to the hype. Time to rethink, AC.

  • If you are in front of your man pulling him forward is it not technically also a form of obstruction?

  • We should be more competitive against the Wobblies and the Argies. All Blacks will be another story.

  • @Bokhoring (Comment 113) : Ja I don’t think that will be nearly the same ballgame. Frenchies never looked threatening. That might be some real test of capabilities.

  • @coolfusion (Comment 114) : I would have liked to see them continue from this high onto better competition to build a bit more. Sadly they will be disrupted now.

  • Hey Rob,
    Did Frans Steyn kicking the ball upfield after the hooter give you a deja vu feeling also?

  • Happy about the win, but far from perfect. Actually thought the quality of play was on the low side.

    Compared to the AB v Lions this was clearly two teams on a lower level.

    But will take the win.

  • Taking into consideration that the French was 3rd in this year six nations and that they have apparently lost 12 of their last 19 games, then the Boks win does not count for much. I however believe in giving recognition – so well done to the Boks….
    Hopefully this would be the starting of your revival.

    Now back to Super rugby – Is Lambie back???
