Springbok coach Jacques Nienaber on Monday named 18 Rugby World Cup winners in a strong South Africa “A” team captained by Lukhanyo Am for their clash with the British & Irish Lions at Cape Town Stadium on Wednesday.

Uncapped Joseph Dweba (hooker) and Nicolaas Janse van Rensburg (lock) were also among the 25 named — including 10 replacements from which the final eight will be confirmed closer to kick off.

The starting XV features five players who started in the Springbok Test against Georgia a little over two weeks ago while Morne Steyn, who kicked the penalty goal to win a series against the Lions 12 years ago, makes his reacquaintance with the famous red jersey.
