Springboks coach Jacques Nienaber has recalled the experienced Elton Jantjies and Frans Steyn for tomorrow’s Rugby Championship test against the All Blacks as they look to rebound from successive defeats against Australia.

Both will start off the bench.

Players like Eben Etzebeth, Siya Kolisi, Kwagga Smith, Duane Vermeulen, Faf de Klerk, Handre Pollard and Willie le Roux are in the starting 15.

Nienaber says they are fully aware of the challenge that awaits them, and know what they have to do to stay on the right side of the scoreboard with strong defence, accurate execution and capitalising on their point-scoring chances.

He says they also have to ensure they make minimal mistakes because the All Blacks have proved time and again how they punish teams from small errors.

The All Blacks will face South Africa at 7.05pm tomorrow while Australia will play Argentina at 10.05pm.
