The Springboks have released seven of their squad who play for overseas clubs ahead of Saturday's Test, as it falls outside of the IRB International window. Among those missing will be experienced lock Bakkies Botha and speedster Bryan Habana, Schalk Brits and Morne Steyn.

IRB Junior World Player of the Year, Handre Pollard, will win his first cap in the No. 10 jersey against the Scots. The selection of Pollard is one of six changes to the side that squeezed home against Wales 31-30 last weekend.
