The fleet-footed Damian Willemse will start at flyhalf and Canan Moodie will make his international debut after Handre Pollard, Lukhanyo Am and Pieter-Steph du Toit were ruled out due to knee injuries while Elton Jantjies also misses out on selection after injuring his hand.

The Springboks have made a staggering eight changes to their starting line up for Saturday’s Rugby Championship Test against Australia in Sydney.

The matchday squad is the latest Bok team that will attempt to break the nine-year winless streak against the Wallabies at home.

The fleet-footed Damian Willemse will start at flyhalf and Canan Moodie will make his international debut after Handre Pollard, Lukhanyo Am and Pieter-Steph du Toit were ruled out due to knee injuries while Elton Jantjies will also miss out on selection after injuring his hand.

“With both flyhalves injured, Damian was the natural choice at number 10 where he has slotted in for us a lot. He is also becoming a settled player in our team with over 20 Test caps to his name,” said Springbok coach Jacques Nienaber said

Hooker Joseph Dweba struggled in his two appearances against New Zeland and Australia and has been ditched with Deon Fourie providing cover on the bench while Malcolm Marx takes over the number two jersey.
