South Africa name new back­line

Fiji Sun - - Sport -

Syd­ney: South Africa coach Al­lis­ter Coet­zee named Fran­cois Hougaard, Juan de Jongh and Jesse Kriel for the Rugby Cham­pi­onship Test against Aus­tralia in Bris­bane tonight. The changes come af­ter the Spring­boks suf­fered a 26-24 loss to Ar­gentina in Salta two weeks ago. One change is due to in­jury while an­other is a po­si­tional switch. Hougaard comes into the side as a re­place­ment for Ruan Com­brinck, who frac­tured his leg against the Pu­mas, and he will play on the left wing, push­ing Bryan Ha­bana on to the right flank.
