Springbok Coach Allister Coetzee has made five changes to his starting 15 for Saturday’s test match against Wales in Cardiff – their last match on the European Tour.

With eighth man Duane Vermeulen and flank Francois Louw not available due to club commitments, Dan du Preez gets his first start while Siya Kolisi returns after missing the Scotland match due to the birth of his second child.

Hooker Malcolm Marx has fully recovered from his shoulder injury and returns to the starting 15 with Bongi Mbonambi returning to the bench.

Steven Kitshoff will start as loose-head prop in place of the injured Tendai Mtawarira.

In the only change among the backs, the talented Warrick Gelant replaces Courtnall Skosan on the wing.

Scrumhalf Louis Schreuder and utility back Lukhanyo Am are the two uncapped players on the bench that shows six changes in total.
