There are no changes to the Bok side to take on Scotland this Saturday.

Peter de Villiers opted to pick his strongest available team for the test against the Scots with Adi Jacobs and Bakkies Botha both said to be fit to take the field on Saturday.

De Villiers no doubt wants to build momentum into the England match next week Saturday and complete a clean sweep of the Northern Hemisphere tour.

Bok Side for Scotland (from Keo.co.za):

15 Conrad Jantjes, 14 JP Pietersen, 13 Adi Jacobs, 12 Jean de Villiers, 11 Bryan Habana, 10 Ruan Pienaar, 9 Fourie du Preez, 8 Pierre Spies, 7 Juan Smith, 6 Schalk Burger, 5 Victor Matfield, 4 Bakkies Botha, 3 John Smit (c), 2 Bismarck du Plessis, 1 Beast Mtawarira.
Reserves: 16 Brian Mujati, 17 Gurthro Steenkamp, 18 Andries Bekker, 19 Ryan Kankowski, 20 Ricky Januarie, 21 Frans Steyn, 22 Jaque Fourie.

    Agreed, if he named Earl Rose in the team this thread would have shot up to 500 in an hour! :)

    Feel sorry for Pakslae not
    even making the bench again.

    Well, NOT naming the Mummy kind of
    makes up for also not naming
    Pakslae.

    Bekker is very fortunate to be there
    again.

    What happened to all the talk about
    rotating players?
    Kilts are by far the weakest side,
    would have been ideal for rotation.

    Really don’t think they needed to play Bakkies at all and could have started with Danie… could have rested ADI to the bench, giving Fourie some much needed game time (the guy hasn’t had more than 5 minutes)…

    FDP, RP, JDV partnership did need to start… and Kanko could have started as a tester with Spies from the bench…
