F Steyn and Jacque Fourie return to Bloks backline

5:50 am on 25 August 2010

The Springboks have recalled Francois Steyn and Jacque Fourie, two of their World Cup winning backs, for this weekend's Tri-Nations rugby test against the Wallabies in Pretoria.

Steyn has returned from his French club to take over at fullback, and Fourie replaces Juan de Jongh at centre, after being banned for four weeks for a dangerous tackle against Australia in Brisbane.

Coach Peter de Villiers kept faith with the forwards who produced a much-improved all-round display in their last-minute 29-22 loss to the All Blacks last weekend.
