He’s opting to stick largely with the team that narrowly lost last weekend to the All Blacks.
There had been an expectation that Meyer might look to give some players an opportunity that hadn’t played much in this tournament.
But with captain Fourie du Preez ruled out with injury, Victor Matfield leads the side in what is likely to be his final test.
Meyer explains why he resisted the urge to make changes.
“Confession was there to have some fresh guys, but by saying that maybe people understood me wrong. I’ve always said playing for third and fourth and if you accept that, you’ll never be a winner. And I’ve said it’s never good enough for South Africa to compete for third and fourth and be happy about it.”
The total Test caps for the Springbok starting line-up is 835.
There are 342 caps in the backline with 493 caps amongst the forwards.
On the bench there are a further 274 caps.
