South Africa had had a great start to Rugby Championship with two categorical victories against The Pumas, but Australia cut that streak. By the 3rd date, the Wallabies They beat him 28-26 and by the 4th the wallaby victory by 30-17 was categorical. Then it was New Zealand that deepened this negative streak and beat him 19-17 last weekend. Now the Springboks and the All blacks will close the competition in Gold coast, on Saturday at 6:50 am live on STAR +.
Jacques Nienaber bets again on experience for the match against New Zealand. The only modification that Coach Bok makes is the entry of Ox Nche in the place of Frans Malherbe and Trevor Nyakane will pass as the right pillar.
In the bench of substitutes the good third line Jasper Wiese reappears who will be an option for the complement.
The surprise for many was the continued absence of Cheslin Kolbe. The wing could not be in the last three games of the Rugby Championship and will also miss the final day against the All Blacks.
