South Africa vs England 3rd Test: team news, kick off and live stream

Newlands is bracing for what could be its final international, as the Springboks prepare to take on England in the final Test of the three-match series on Saturday.

The hosts go into the clash in high spirits, having clinched the series in Bloemfontein, allowing coach, Rassie Erasmus a chance to tweak his side going into the match, with no less than five changes made.

After suffering his fifth successive defeat, Eddie Jones has also made some changes of his own, the most notable being the return of flyhalf, Danny Cipriani who makes his return to the starting line-up, after having been out in the wilderness for ten years.

The Springboks also have a returnee of their own in the form of Saracens legend, Schalk Brits, who gets a chance to add to his ten international caps as he has been penned in on the bench, with Chiliboy Ralepelle taking the number two shirt in the only change among the forwards.

Despite the clash being a dead rubber, Erasmus expects an intense affair, as the struggling Englishmen are bound to give it their all to avoid a series whitewash.
