South Africa’s first game of their incoming tour sees the Boks take on Italy this weekend at Kings Park. Use your exclusive membership with Watch Live Rugby and see South Africa v Italy live on your computer.
The Bocks won all three of their games on their Northern Hemisphere tour last winter, but have been rocked by injuries, especially in the backline where Francios Steyn and JP Pietersen have been ruled out.
Coach Heyneke Meyer has given maiden caps to Bulls scrumhalf Jano Vermaak and Cheetahs full back Willie Le Roux, with Le Roux’s colleague Trevor Nyakane and last year’s Junior World Cup player of the year Jan Serfontein in line to make their debuts off the bench. In the absence of Duane Vermeulen, Pierre Spies reclaims the No.8 jersey, with Morne Steyn’s superb club form relegating Sharks utility back Pat Lambie to the bench.
Italy had an impressive Six Nations, finishing fourth and stunning both France and Ireland in the process. Captained by the impressive State No.8 Sergio Parisse, Jacques Brunel’s men will be keen to make an impact on South African soil and follow up on a good Six Nations performance.
