Rugby World Cup: South Africa with Etzebeth and seven forwards on the bench against Ireland

South Africa will start with returning second row Eben Etzebeth in their World Cup Group B clash against Ireland on Saturday (9:00 p.m.) at the Stade de France, according to the composition of the Springboks team revealed on Tuesday. The ex-Toulonnais, left during the victory against Scotland (18-3) due to a shoulder injury, returns to the starting XV after being preserved, like most of the starters, against Romania ( 76-0).

Except for Bongi Mbonambi, started at the back after Malcolm Marx's withdrawal for the entire competition, all the other starters for the match against the XV at Chardon are renewed. As announced by the director of rugby, the opener of the victorious 2019 World Cup, Handre Pollard, recalled on Sunday, is not among the replacements.

As during the historic rout inflicted on the All Blacks (35-7) two weeks before the World Cup, the Springbok bench has seven forwards and only one back, in this case the scrum half from Montpellier, Cobus Reinach.

South Africa vs Ireland team line-up:

Willemse - Arendse, Kriel, De Allende, Kolbe - (o) Libbok, (m) De Klerk - Du Toit, Wiese, Kolisi (cap.) - Mostert, Etzebeth - Malherbe, Mbonambi, Kitshoff

Replacements: Fourie, Nche, Nyakane, Snyman, Kleyn, Van Staden, Smith, Reinach
