Today’s game comes to you from a wet and windy Twickenham Stadium in South-West London.

Heyneke Meyer and his Boks have failed to really impress on the tour so far, but crucially – according to the coach at least – have managed to remain unbeaten. They’ll be looking for a 3rd win here to end off a long and inconsistent year on a positive note.

Anything more than a win, you’d fancy, would be a bonus, particularly in these conditions.

The English have been disappointing themselves this Autumn and will look to bounce back after losing to a poor Australian side last week.

Kick-off at HQ is at 14h30 GMT, or half pas four if you’re in Mzansi.

England: 15 Alex Goode, 14 Chris Ashton, 13 Manu Tuilagi, 12 Brad Barritt, 11 Mike Brown, 10 Toby Flood, 9 Ben Youngs, 8 Ben Morgan, 7 Chris Robshaw (captain), 6 Tom Wood, 5 Geoff Parling, 4 Joe Launchbury, 3 Dan Cole, 2 Tom Youngs, 1 Alex Corbisiero.
Replacements: 16 David Paice, 17 David Wilson, 18 Mako Vunipola, 19 Mouritz Botha, 20 James Haskell, 21 Danny Care, 22 Owen Farrell, 23 Jonathan Joseph.

South Africa: 15 Zane Kirchner, 14 JP Pietersen, 13 Juan de Jongh, 12 Jean de Villiers (captain), 11 François Hougaard, 10 Pat Lambie, 9 Ruan Pienaar, 8 Duane Vermeulen, 7 Willem Alberts, 6 François Louw, 5 Juandré Kruger, 4 Eben Etzebeth, 3 Jannie du Plessis, 2 Adriaan Strauss, 1 Gurthrö Steenkamp.
Replacements: 16 Schalk Brits, 17 Heinke van der Merwe, 18 Pat Cilliers, 19 Flip van der Merwe, 20 Marcell Coetzee, 21 Elton Jantjies, 22 Jaco Taute, 23 Lwazi Mvovo.

  • Everyone is giving Pienaar gears for his kak delivery .I feel sorry for the guy because he is playing in a team that doesn’t get quick ruck ball. We should carefully emulate how NZ get their ball out and how they ruck/clean/carry the ball into contact.

    A few guys have been piss poor on this tour, for the life of me I cannot see what Juandre Kruger adds to the team in any capacity. For Meyer to insinuate that he is better than Bresler by not selecting Bresler ,shows me the depth of his lack of rugby acumen or the dire extent of his cronyism.

    Is Etzebeth the enforcer type we need -watch this video and think about it ;http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KyI1UQfT6K0
    We need bakkies back ! Play Etzebeth and Bakkies together.

    I thought Lambie had his best game of the tour! Defended well ,kicked for goal well and attacked the gain line well.

  • Pienaar’s kicking was woeful, it started off average and just deteriorated to where he tried everything in his power to cost us the game.

    And every time there’s a penalty, Lambie just about has to beg Pienaar for the ball so that he that is Lambie can do his job.

    I think Pienaar has become a bit of a prima donna and I sure hope next year’s SR season will be enough time for any one of Reinach, Groom, van Zyl and Houghaard to prove themselves as Springbok scrummies willing and able to SERVE the FH with good clean ball, and not try to outshine everyone, like Pienaar.

    I’ve noticed that whenever a Sharks player has an average game you either blame the Coach, the game plan or his team mates.

    Pienaar was poor yesterday! End of!

  • Pienaar was slow yesterday and by far the worst player for the bokke. Forwards can’t be blamed for Pienaar being slow behind the rucks and his bad kicking.
