Springboks to put out unchanged line-up against England

6:22 am on 22 November 2012

The Springbok rugby coach Heyneke Meyer has named an unchanged starting line-up for their final Test of the season against England at Twickenham this weekend.

JP Pietersen and Guthro Steenkamp both had niggling injuries following the side's 21-10 win over Scotland last weekend but both have been cleared for the England match.

The only changes are on the bench, where Pat Cilliers comes in for the injured CJ van der Linde and Elton Jantjies replaces Morné Steyn.

Springbok captain Jean de Villiers will become the fifth most-capped Springbok of all time and most-capped member of the 2012 squad when he plays in his 84th Test.
