Lambie starts at 15 against Oz
Pretoria: Pat Lambie, Morne Steyn and Rudy Paige will all start for the Springboks when they take on Australia at Loftus Versfeld tomorrow.
The inclusion of Paige at scrum-half is one of three changes made to the Springbok line-up that started the match against the All Blacks two weeks ago in Christchurch. Paige, who has made four Test appearances from the Bok bench, will partner the experienced Morné Steyn in the halfbacks. They take over from Faf de Klerk and Elton Jantjies respectively, both of whom started in the last six Tests of the year. The only other change to the starting line-up sees Pat Lambie return to the team for the first time since he suffered concussion in the series opener against Ireland in June. Lambie will play full-back, where he is preferred over Johan Goosen. The Sharks player, who will earn his 52nd Springbok cap, has already scored 137 Test points in the Green and Gold jersey. The Springbok forward pack that played against the All Blacks in Christchurch was kept unchanged, with hooker Adriaan Strauss again leading out the team after he suffered a knock to the lower back in New Zealand. South Africa: 15 Patrick Lambie, 14 Bryan Habana, 13 Jessie Kriel, 12 Juan de Jongh, 11 Francois Hougaard, 10 Morne Steyn, 9 Rudy Paige, 8 Warren Whiteley, 7 Teboho Mohoje, 6 Francois Louw, 5 Pieter-Steph du Toit, 4 Eben Etzebeth, 3 Vincent Koch, 2 Adriaan Strauss, 1 Tendai Mtawarira Replacements: 16 Bongi Mbonambi, 17 Stephen Kitshoff, 18 Julian Redelinghuys, 19 Lood de Jager, 20 Willem Alberts, 21 Jaco Kriel, 22 Willie le Roux , 23 Lionel Mapoe.
