15 Willie le Roux, 14 Grant Williams, 13 Canan Moodie, 12 Andre Esterhuizen, 11 Makazole Mapimpi, 10 Handre Pollard, 9 Cobus Reinach, 8 Jasper Wiese, 7 Duane Vermeulen, 6 Siya Kolisi (captain), 5 Marvin Orie, 4 Eben Etzebeth, 3 Vincent Koch, 2 Deon Fourie, 1 Ox NcheSemi-rotation time IMO. Not what I expect rcessairly but hoping for if Pollard has 60 minutes in him let him have it. Think 6-2 or dare we even revert to a 5-3 split seeing as we want rotation at the back as well. I'm going for the unthinkable and opting for a 5-3 bench.

If only 2 teams are tied on table points, the first tiebreaker is "the winner of the match between those 2 teams"Something's not right. Scotland won big, and now have a larger plus points difference than South Africa, yet they are 3rd on the log with the same points.

For it to come down to points difference, you need either
A) 3 teams tied on table points, or
B) 2 teams tied, but the match between them was a draw
