Eben Etzebeth has been named on the Springbok bench for Saturday’s match against Wales at the Millennium Stadium.
The 27-year-old lock, who injured a foot in the tour opener against England, comes in for Lood de Jager.
It is the only change to the match 23, with Bok coach Rassie Erasmus retaining the starting XV that beat Scotland 26-20 at Murrayfield last Saturday.
The Boks are looking to end a three-match losing streak against Wales and claim an eighth win in 14 Tests this year.
‘Wales have a formidable squad and their current run of eight unbeaten Tests is proof and also an indication of their good form at the moment,’ said Bok coach Rassie Erasmus.
‘As I’ve said before, we know Saturday’s Test is going to be our most difficult match of the tour. Wales defeated us in Washington in June and have now won the last three games against us.
‘They are a well-balanced and strong side with a great home record, so our boys will be in for a massive contest on Saturday.
‘We will be desperate to win, and to end the tour on a high would be fantastic for the experience and growth of this squad.’
Springboks – 15 Willie le Roux, 14 S’bu Nkosi, 13 Jesse Kriel, 12 Damian de Allende, 11 Aphiwe Dyantyi, 10 Handre Pollard, 9 Embrose Papier, 8 Duane Vermeulen, 7 Pieter-Steph du Toit, 6 Siya Kolisi (captain), 5 Franco Mostert, 4 RG Snyman, 3 Frans Malherbe, 2 Malcolm Marx, 1 Steven Kitshoff.
