Le Roux’s promotion to the starting line up pushed Coenie van Wyk down to the replacements bench.

On the wing Sergeal Petersen moves from right to left wing, replacing Cornal Hendricks and Clayton Blommetjies moves in on right wing.

Henco Venter moves up from the bench to replace Tienie Burger. Oupa Mohoje and Renier Botha come on to the replacements bench while Shaun Venter drops out of the 23.
