Boks make two changes for Brisbane test

5:55 am on 2 September 2009

The Springboks have been forced to make two changes to their squad for this weekend's Tri-Nations test against the Wallabies in Brisbane.

In the only change to the starting fifteen from last weekend, Odwa Ndungane replaces winger JP Pietersen who's returned to South Africa with a hamstring injury, and lock Danie Roussouw has been brought onto the bench for Andries Bekker who's back home recovering from a shoulder injury.

The winless Wallabies coach Robbie Deans wielded the axe yesterday making five changes to Australia's starting XV and two more on the bench.

The Springboks are unbeaten after four matches and another victory at Lang Park on Saturday will wrap up their first Tri-Nations title before their final match against the All Blacks next weekend in Hamilton.
