Jacques nienaber announced two very good news for South Africa refering to training to face Australia Sunday at 7 o’clock by date 3 of Rugby Championship. Vermeulen and By Klerk return to ownership before Wallabies.
The Sprinbgoks will have -almost- the entire team for the third date of the southern hemisphere competition. Nienaber will not have Cheslin Kolbe, one of the best backs in the world, at his disposal. But they will start the eighth Duane Vermeulen and the great scrum half, Faf de Klerk.
There are seven changes that South Africa will have with respect to the team that beat Los Pumas in Port Elizabeth three weeks ago. In the first line enter Steven Kitshoff, Bongi Mbonambi and Frans Malherbe instead of Malcolm Marx, Ox Nché and Vincent Koch. On the other hand, also in the forwards Eben Etzebeth and Duane Vermeulen will replace Marvin Orie and Jasper Wiese.
Finally, in the backs Faf de Klerk will play in place of Cobus Reinach and Sbu Nkosi will be in the place of Cheslin Kolbe who suffered a leg injury during training.
