Liam Williams will start at fullback for Wales against the Springboks in Cardiff on Saturday.
Coach Warren Gatland fielded an experimental side against Tonga last weekend, but has opted to revert to the starting lineup that beat the Wallabies a fortnight ago.
The only difference between that run-on XV and the one that will front the Boks, is the inclusion of Williams in the absence of Leigh Halfpenny, who has been ruled out of the Test due to a concussion.
Owen Watkin, who started at inside centre against Tonga, takes Williams’ spot on the bench.
‘We have rewarded the team that faced Australia with another start this weekend,’ said Gatland. ‘Leigh misses out with concussion, but it’s a great opportunity for Liam at fullback.
‘We are really pleased with how the bench has gone in the first three games, so we will be looking for that impact again on Saturday.
‘There were a lot of tough selection calls, but that is what we want. The team that played last week was hugely impressive and there are some disappointed boys who miss out.
‘We want to end the campaign with a big performance against a very good South African side.’
