Surprised at no Farrell on the bench - if Biggar goes down then we've got....Murray at 10?

Apart from the center combinations that's gotta be pretty close to the starting test line up.

That's a bit of a risk - A bit like Monye at full back for England - has he ever played there before? More than just shifting across due to injury, I mean.
Especially with an experienced FB like Daly also in the 23 - wouldn't you at least swap them around?

I wouldn't say so at all. The front row are on the bench at best and Beirne and Watson are probably the front runners for 6 and 7. I doubt LRZ will be in the 23. It's probably the test test second row and half back pairing though.

I imagine he'll be in quarantine for a few days before being a full part of the squad, even with negative tests (just to make sure he didn't catch it travelling)

This team looks like its just all the people that haven't had to play loads of matches at altitude. Farrell, Daly, Price, VDM, H Watson etc all played nearly every match at altitude due to rotation and then the Covid outbreak. Obviously there are some test combinations but I don't think this is anywhere near the team that'll line up in just under 2 weeks time.

Anyone know when the Boks A side is named?
I'm guessing there's a delay while further testing occurs?

It's meant to be today according to the 42, no word on what time though.

Guess it's actually a four test series, not three!

Wow that’s a lot stronger than expected. What’s going on with the subs? There are 10 of them…

Was wondering that myself - according the Boks site the finalised bench will be named before kickoff
I'm guessing they're waiting on test results on a few
