South Africa stick with familiar side for rematch against All Blacks

Prop Ox Nche (Niche) will come into the South Africa starting line-up after coach Jacques Nienaber made one injury change to the side that will face the All Blacks on the Gold Coast tonight.

Nche (Niche) will start at loosehead with Trevor Nyakane (Ni-kane) switching to tighthead after Frans Mal-herbe was ruled out with a neck injury.

There is also a change on the replacement's bench, where loose forward Jasper Wiese takes over from Marco van Staden for the last game in this year's competition.

Van Staden suffered a shoulder injury in the latter stages of last week's 19-17 defeat by the All Blacks in Townsville.

It means there is no comeback for star winger Cheslin Kolbe, who missed the team's first three matches in Australia in the southern hemisphere tournament, where they lost twice to the Wallabies and then to the All Blacks last weekend.

The Springboks will face the All Blacks at 10.05 tonight and the Wallabies meet Argentina at 7.05 tonight.
