Teichmann's Springbok call-up

The Natal captain Gary Teichmann is the only new cap in the South African side to play Wales at Ellis Park, Cape Town, on 2 September. Teichmann, who toured Argentina in 1993 and Scotland and Wales last year without making the Test side, takes over the No 8 shirt from his provincial team- mate Mark Andrews, who reverts to lock in place of the injured Hannes Strydom. The only other change to the team who beat New Zealand in the World Cup final is the return of hooker James Dalton in place of Chris Rossouw. Dalton was banned from the remainder of the World Cup after he was involved in a mass brawl against Canada during a pool match.

Squad: A Joubert; J Small, J Mulder, H le Roux, C Williams; J Stransky, J van der Westhuizen; G Teichmann, R Kruger, F Pienaar (capt), M Andrews, K Wiese, B Swart, J Dalton, O du Randt.
