De Beer keeps place for England game
As expected South Africa will start Sunday's quarter final clash against England with Jannie de Beer (pictured)
Although Henry Honiball is fit enough to take a place amongst the replacements Nick Mallett has decided to stick with De Beer, who will be playing his fourth consecutive game in the competition.
The only change to the team that beat Uruguay a week ago sees centre Pieter Muller, come in for Brendan Venter, who's appeal against suspension, after being sent of against the Uruguayans, failed last night.
The absence of Honiball and Venter deprives the Springboks of their main midfield attacking thrust, but Mallett indicated earlier in the week that he will expect De beer to push the English forwards backwards with his accurate line kicking.
South Africa: Percy Montgomery; Deon Kayser, Robbie Fleck, Pieter Muller, Pieter Rossouw; Jannie De Beer, Joost Van der Westhuizen (capt); Andre Venter, Bobby Skinstad, Rassie Erasmus, Krynauw Otto, Mark Andrews, Cobus Visagie, Naka Drotske, Os Du Randt
Remplacments: Stefan Terblanche, Henry Honiball, Werner Swanepoel, Andre Vos, Albert Van den Berg, Ollie Le Roux, Chris Rossouw
