Springboks Name Team For Semi Final Showdown With All Blacks

Heyneke Meyer has unveiled the Springbok team that will take on the All Blacks.

South African coach, Heyneke Meyer, has named an unchanged team starting XV for this weekend’s semi final showdown with New Zealand.

This means that Schalk Burger will earn his 78th cap, making him the most capped Springbok flanker of all time. The game could also see Ruan Pienaar become South Africa’s most capped substitute, having already equalled Ollie le Roux’s record of making 43 appearances from the bench.

The only change Meyer has made is on the bench, where Victor Matfield  comes in for Pieter-Steph du Toit after recovering from a hamstring injury.
