The Springboks have been crying foul the entire week over a TMO mishap that rejected their penalty over Owen Farrell’s high tackle.

 

A new challenge sets off this week in the form of the unpredictable “les bleu” – France possess an incredibly skilled yet big and physical squad that will be aiming to right the wrongs of the recent past.

 

Coach Rassie Erasmus unveiled his team for this epic test with the bonus that he has Faf De Klerk and Willie Le Roux available for this crunch tie.

 

The team is largely unchanged save for the return of the above who replace Van zyl and Willemse at #9 and #15 respectively.

 

Cheslin Kolbe returns to action this week having missed the clash against England while everything else remains as it was last week.
