Reading Time: < 1 minute

Fullback Damian Willemse, Jesse Kriel and Herschel Jantjies will start against Wales in Cardiff on Saturday as Springbok coach Jacques Nienaber made four changes to his matchday squad that defeated the All Blacks in the last round of the Rugby Championship.

Willemse, who has 14 test caps, will earn his fourth start in the green and gold when he runs out at fullback, while it will be Jantjies’ third test in the number nine jersey.

He pairs up with Handré Pollard in the halfback combination. Kriel, who starts at right-wing, will earn his 49th cap.

Jantjies’ promotion to the starting line-up sees Cobus Reinach being drafted onto the replacements bench in the only change among the reserves.
