Bok team for the series decider.

The Springboks have named their side for the third and final test against Wales this weekend in Cape Town. The series currently stands at 1 all after games in Pretoria and Bloemfontein and there is everything to play for this weekend. Wales will fancy their chances after recording their first every victory on South African shores, whilst the Boks have their backs against the walls and will need to put on a strong performance if they want to get their year on track.

There were always going to be a number of changes this week again, with a number of test veterans and World Cup winners returning to the fray. A final like this is not the time to experiment and the Boks will be hoping their front liners fire from the outset and finally achieve the dominant performance against Wales that was predicted before the tour commenced.

This weekend will also be Eben Etzebeth 100th test for the Boks at the age of just 30 he joins Springbok legends Percy Montgomery (102), Jean De Villiers (109), John Smith (111), Beast Mtawarira (117), Bryan Habana (124) and Victor Matfield (127). He is the youngest to ever have done it and with a good few years left of his career, he could become the most capped Springbok of all time.
