Lukhanyo Am is back to tackle France on Sunday in the Springbok team chosen by SARugbymag.co.za readers.
Readers chose a front row of Steven Kitshoff (18%), Bongi Mbonambi (18%) and Frans Malherbe (17%), backed up by locks Eben Etzebeth (20%) and Franco Mostert (13%).

There’s no change in the halfbacks where Handre Pollard (35%) retains his spot at flyhalf alongside Faf de Klerk (40%).
Lukhanyo Am (22%) makes a dramatic return to the starting lineup having only been recalled to the squad last week after missing the initial World Cup squad with a knee injury.
