In the forwards, CJ van der Linde will start ahead of Jacques van Rooyen. An injury to Chris van Zyl, sees Willie Britz shift into the lock position.

Meanwhile, Warwick Tecklenburg and Lambert Groenewald are promoted to the starting side.

In the backline, Elton Janties will start at flyhalf with Marnitz Boshoff shifting into the fullback berth. Chrysander Botha drops out of the match day side due to injury.

On the bench, Hugo Kloppers, JJ Breet and Andries Coetzee are all new inclusions.
