Cheetahs wing Jongi Nokwe will make his debut for the Springboks on Saturday against Argentina in the Mandela Challenge match at Coca-Cola Park in Johannesburg.

News 24 reports that the Cheetahs speedster was today named in the Springbok starting line-up for the much anticipated clash against the Pumas. Centre Jaque Fourie and scrumhalf Fourie du Preez were included as replacements for the rematch of October?s Rugby World Cup semi-final. Both joined the Springbok squad again after lengthy lay-offs due to injury.

Also included on the bench are the number eight Joe van Niekerk and veteran fullback Percy Montgomery.

Van Niekerk will earn his 50th Test cap if used as a substitute while Montgomery will feature in his 99th Test for South Africa should he also enter the action from the bench.

The Springboks versus Argentina on Saturday 9 August at Coca-Cola Park:

Team: 15. Conrad Jantjes 14. JP Pietersen 13. Adrian Jacobs 12. Jean de Villiers 11. Jongi Nokwe 10. Butch James 9. Enrico Januarie 8. Pierre Spies 7. Juan Smith 6. Luke Watson 5. Victor Matfield (captain) 4. Bakkies Botha 3. CJ van der Linde 2. Bismarck du Plessis 1. Tendai Mtawarira.

Reserves 16. Adriaan Strauss 17. Brian Mujati 18. Andries Bekker 19. Joe van Niekerk 20. Fourie du Preez 21. Jaque Fourie 22. Percy Montgomery.


  • Four guys ( Fourie, Du preez, Percy and Van Niekerk) on the bench that should be starting IMO, but lets see what happens.

    Joe in place of Spies

  • Good team…
    Just hope we don’t need to make prop replacements…the Pumas will scrum us like no other…
    Unless they depleted in those positions as well!??!
