South African coach, Rassie Erasmus, has rotated his Springbok team for their Rugby World Cup Pool B match against Namibia in Toyota City in Japan on Saturday.

Erasmus made 13 changes to the starting line-up that lost to New Zealand at the weekend.

Schalk Brits will start as number eight and will lead the team onto the field.

Only left-wing, Makazole Mapimpi and centre, Lukhanyo Am, retained their positions in the starting 15 for the clash in Toyota.

Regular Bok captain, Siya Kolisi, will start on the bench.

Thomas du Toit, who arrived in Japan on Tuesday as an injury replacement for Trevor Nyakane, goes straight into the match on day 23 as a front row replacement.
