South Africa name new backline
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.
