Wales have changed their entire team for the second match of their southern Africa tour against the Emerging Springboks on Friday. Their coach Dennis John has rested all 15 players who started last Saturday's Test against Zimbabwe in Harare, which Wales won 49-11. The new side includes five uncapped players: Darril Williams and Garan Evans from Llanelli, Ebbw Vale's Lenny Woodard, Ben Evans of Neath and Newport's Ian Gough. John's son Paul will captain the side from scrum-half.
