South Africa v Tonga RECAP | World Cup
READERS’ FORUM: Welcome to our live coverage of the World Cup Pool B match between South Africa and Tonga at Stade de Marseille.
After a call-up to South Africa’s squad following Malcolm Marx’s World Cup-ending injury, Handré Pollard starts at No.10 on Sunday, winning his first Springbok cap since August 2022.
Pollard is one of 12 changes of personnel to the Springboks’ starting line-up after their 13-8 loss to Ireland, with lock Eben Etzebeth, captain Siya Kolisi – who leads the Springboks for the 50th time – and No.8 Jasper Wiese the only players to retain their spots in the pack, while the whole backline has changed.
