Jeremy Ward will lead a team that includes World Cup-winning Springbok prop Thomas du Toit and has former Junior Bok Juan van der Mescht – a regular lock – on the flank.

Pumas coach Jimmy Stonehouse, who was forced into making six changes, believes the conditions are playing a big part in the hosts’ team selections.
