All four scrumhalves will be in action for the Springboks after Jacques Nienaber named the team to face Romania on Sunday at the 2023 Rugby World Cup.
Cobus Reinach will start at scrumhalf, with Jaden Hendrikse providing cover off the bench and Grant Williams speed utilised on the right wing. Faf de Klerk covers flyhalf from the bench in a split of five forwards and three backs.
The only player in the starting XV that continues in the run-on team from last week’s 18-3 victory over Scotland in Marseille is utility back Damian Willemse, who switches from fullback to flyhalf.
The 14 changes to the starting team include a return for Canan Moodie (centre) and Jean Kleyn (lock) after missing South Africa’s opener.
Moodie resumes his Twickenham midfield-partnership with the hard-running Andre Esterhuizen, while Kleyn partners Marvin Orie in the engine room.
The experienced Willie le Roux jumps from the bench to the starting lineup at fullback, while Makazole Mapimpi will accompany Williams on the wing.
Nienaber also named a quality forward pack with Ox Nche, Vincent Koch (both props) and Bongi Mbonambi (hooker) joining forces in the front row, and Marco van Staden, Kwagga Smith (both flankers) and Duane Vermeulen (No 8) forming a new loose trio.
Deon Fourie will serve as the back-up hooker on the bench, alongside a quality set of forwards in Steven Kitshoff, Trevor Nyakane (both props), RG Snyman (lock) and Jasper Wiese (No 8), while Jesse Kriel (centre) is the third back.
