Joubert fit to face Wallabies
Thursday 11 July 1996
South Africa have made two changes to the team who beat Fiji 43-18 eight days ago, with centre Brendan Venter replacing the injured Hennie Le Roux and the wing Pieter Hendriks preferred to Justin Swart. The Wallabies, smarting from their 43-6 loss to New Zealand last Saturday, have made four changes - the stand-off Pat Howard, scrum-half George Gregan, flanker Daniel Manu and prop Andrew Heath.
English double champions Bath are more than doubling season-ticket prices for next season. Ground tickets are up from pounds 50 to pounds 110 and the cheapest stand seats will rise from pounds 90 to pounds 185. Entrance on the day will cost pounds 10, up from pounds 7 last season.
The club say they need to raise extra money to pay their players, although they are set to unveil details on Friday of major financial backing from the greetings card tycoon Andrew Brownsword.
SOUTH AFRICA (v Australia, Sydney, Saturday): Joubert, Small, Mulder, Venter, Hendriks, Honiball, van der Westhuizen, Teichmann, Kruger, Pienaar (capt), Andrews, Ackermann, Hurter, Allan, du Rant. Replacements: Swart, Stransky, Roux, Swart, Drotske, Atherton.
