Allister Coetzee will name two separate squads on Saturday ahead of the Springboks' four-game tour to Europe.
Confirmation of the Bok touring party will follow the Currie Cup final between the Free State Cheetahs and Blue Bulls on Saturday night. Two squads, one for the international match on 5 November against the Barbarians at Wembley, and another squad for the remaining three tour matches against England, Italy and Wales, will be announced.
The match between the Barbarians and the Boks falls outside the World Rugby-sanctioned window. European and Japanese clubs are not obligated to release their Bok players until the following week.
