Post Springboks for Wales
I like nr6 , the 2 x du Preez brothers (the third one Jean-Luc staying to play against England for the Springboks at nr7, the father Robert was a Springbok and the fourth brother thereabouts , Mapimpi nr11 and the centre pairing. P-S du Toit the Captain for this one (Kolisi stays to Captain the Springboks against England) , Ox Nche one of the two Pro14 players a great prospect. The team haven't played together but I believe most of them if not all will give experienced Wales a hard run

South Africa

15 Curwin Bosch, 14 Travis Ismaiel, 13 Jesse Kriel, 12 Andre Esterhuizen, 11 Makazole Mapimpi, 10 Elton Jantjies, 9 Ivan van Zyl, 8 Dan du Preez, 7 Oupa Mohoje, 6 Kwagga Smith, 5 Pieter-Steph du Toit (captain), 4 Jason Jenkins, 3 Wilco Louw, 2 Chiliboy Ralepelle, 1 Ox Nche

Substitutes: 16 Akker van der Merwe, 17 Steven Kitshoff, 18 Thomas du Toit, 19 Marvin Orie, 20 Sikhumbuzo Notshe, 21 Embrose Papier, 22 Robert du Preez, 23 Warrick Gelant

"Pieter-Steph du Toit will captain a young Springbok team featuring seven uncapped players in the starting line-up against Wales in Washington DC on Saturday (kick-off 23:00 SA time).
Du Toit (lock) will lead South Africa for the first time when they take on the Welsh in this once-off international, which falls outside World Rugby's Test window.

The seven players in the starting team who will be making their debut in the United States capital are Travis Ismaiel and Makazole Mapimpi (wings), Andre Esterhuizen (centre), Ivan van Zyl (scrumhalf), Kwagga Smith (flank), Jason Jenkins (lock) and Ox Nche (prop).

A further six players with no Test experience were included on the bench, namely Akker van der Merwe (hooker), Thomas du Toit (prop), Marvin Orie (lock), Sikhumbuzo Notshe (loose forward), Embrose Papier (scrumhalf) and Robert du Preez (flyhalf).

A crap game and the refereeing of the scrum was interesting.

Not a crowd they'd expected. Tv was poor , checked the highlights. Well done on the win. That last seconds awfull kick of our nr10, ouch .. for us. Not the best teams of both countries. Seems it was supposed to be a money spinner. Will have to see how the Springboks go against England now
