World Rugby: Springboks and England name sides to lock horns in pivotal second test in Bloemfontein

32 year old Tendai Mtawarira who commonly goes by the alias “Beast” will make his 100th Test appearance for South Africa in Bloemfontein on Saturday in the second Test of the June Test Series against England.

Mtawarira will feature in a lethal front row alongside industrial hooker Bongi Mbonambi and Frans Malherbe, who makes a return after a lengthy absence due to injury.

The other change is Pieter-Steph du Toit who returns to the starting XV in the No. 7 jersey in place of Jean Luc- Du Preez.

The rest of the team remains as it was, with Siya Kolisi continuing to captain the squad from flank.

Super rugby recruit Brad Shields will make his first start for England with Danny Cipriani on the bench as well, the wasps flyhalf is set for his first cap since 2015.

Lock Joe Launchbury returns to the starting XV after recovering from a calf injury, he replaces the young Nick Isiekwe, who faced the wrath of Eddie Jones’ early substitutions at Ellis Park.

Owen Farrell continues to captain the side that will be looking to hit back after a very mediocre 55 minutes that saw them give up a 20 point lead and eventually go on to lose the game.

England team : Elliot Daly; Jonny May, Henry Slade, Owen Farrell, Mike Brown; George Ford, Ben Youngs; Mako Vunipola, Jamie George, Kyle Sinckler, Joe Launchbury, Maro Itoje, Brad Shields, Tom Curry, Billy Vunipola

  2. Tottenham have no intention of selling Eric Dier this summer. The England international is admired by Manchester United but the Old Trafford club do not hold much hope of prising him away. Tottenham have no intention of losing Eric Dier amid Manchester United interest but would consider offers of around £45m for Kyle Walker

  3. If Arsene Wenger fails to rally his troops and clinch a fourth place finish in the Premier League, it could be time for the Frenchman to throw in the towel. Wenger faces a mammoth task to lift his sorry squad after Bayern bruising
