Louw De Allende and Kitshoff back in Bok team ahead of All Blacks clash.
Springboks coach Rassie Erasmus made only three changes to his starting line-up to play against the All Blacks in their Castle Lager Rugby Championship Test at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday. Francois Louw replaces Sikhumbuzo Notshe at eighthman with the latter dropping to the bench, Steven Kitshoff starts ahead of Tendai Mtawarira at loosehead prop and Damian de Allende has recovered from a shoulder injury to start at inside centre in place of Andre Esterhuizen. Vincent Koch will be the new face on the Springboks bench and replaces Wilco Louw. Erasmus says the decision to play Louw ahead of Notshe is because of the experience the Bath loose forward brings while Notshe has been retained in the match day 23 because of the impression he made in the win against Australia last weekend.
