    Elton Jantjies will start at first five and Damian Willemse at fullback when South Africa take on Wales in the first test at Loftus Versfeld this weekend

    Elton Jantjies will start at first five and Damian Willemse at fullback when South Africa take on Wales in the first test at Loftus Versfeld this weekend


    Jantjies has been preferred to regular starter Handre Pollard, who played in the French Top 14 final win for Montpellier last weekend , while Willemse is chosen ahead of the vastly more experienced Willie le Roux.

    It suggests the Boks might look to run with ball in hand and move slightly away from their reliance on a kicking game.
