first_imgWednesday Jul 15, 2015 Schalk Burger starts at number eight for Springboks vs Wallabies in Brisbane Schalk Burger is back in the Springboks’ starting line-up for Saturday’s Castle Lager Rugby Championship opener against Australia at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane. Burger’s inclusion at No 8, after a great performance as replacement against the World XV last weekend in Cape Town, is one of five changes to the Springboks’ match-23 for this match. The other four changes are on the bench, where props Heinke van der Merwe and Frans Malherbe, as well as Lood de Jager (lock) and Lwazi Mvovo (wing) have been included.Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer said the changes were all part of the plan to rotate players in the build-up to the Rugby World Cup. “We’re expecting a massive contest for the ball on the ground on Saturday and with Schalk there next to Francois Louw and Marcell Coetzee, as well as Bismarck du Plessis, we’ve got a lot of players who are very good at the breakdowns,” said Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer.“Warren Whiteley played very well last weekend, but he knows exactly where he stands and will play again for the Boks this season. For this match though, we decided to go with this specific loose trio.”Kick off: Saturday 18 July, 20:05 local, 10:05 GMT, 11:05 BSTSpringbok Team:15 Willie le Roux 14 JP Pietersen 13 Jesse Kriel 12 Damian de Allende 11 Bryan Habana 10 Handré Pollard 9 Ruan Pienaar (vice-captain) 8 Schalk Burger 7 Marcell Coetzee 6 Francois Louw 5 Victor Matfield (captain) 4 Eben Etzebeth 3 Jannie du Plessis 2 Bismarck du Plessis 1 Tendai Mtawarira Replacements: 16 Adriaan Strauss 17 Heinke van der Merwe 18 Frans Malherbe 19 Lood de Jager 20 Oupa Mohoje 21 Cobus Reinach 22 Pat Lambie 23 Lwazi MvovoThe Wallabies team is yet to be announcedADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Springboks Related Articles 84 WEEKS AGO Pieter Steph du Toit named World Rugby Player… 87 WEEKS AGO Josh Larsen sees red for no-arms ruck charge… 94 WEEKS AGO Throwback Thursday: Relive the Battle of… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
