The Blitzboks took to Twitter to share the squad news and there were some notable additions.

As Sports24 reported, Justin Geduld was making his return to the squad after a two-year absence from the team. Sako Makata, Dewald Human, Mfundo Ndhlovu and Darren Adonis have also been added to the team.

Coach Neil Powell is confident in his team's abilities and is pleased with the squad he is able to select.

“We are lucky to have most of our squad available again, with only Muller du Plessis not available due to injury,” Powell was quoted as saying by Sports24.
“We also made a call to give Ronald Brown a rest as he has a slight knee strain and we decided not to risk him, but rather to recover as soon as possible.

Fans on social media were also impressed with the team choice and are hopeful that the Blitzboks can continue their winning form.


"Not bad. A few missing names though"


"So glad to see @JustinGeduld back! All the best boys!"


"Nothing but faith in you lads"
