Wallabies name team for Springbok Test - Naisarani to debut

Eben Etzebeth has played 75 Tests for South Africa

The Wallabies will be looking for their first win against the Springboks at Ellis Park since 1963 when they kick off their Rugby Championship campaign on Saturday.

Eben Etzebeth will captain South Africa in their opening match of the 2019 Rugby Championship against Australia at the Emirates Airline Park in Johannesburg on Saturday as coach Rassie Erasmus named his 23-man squad on Wednesday.

Toulouse's Elstadt and Stormers' Jantjies are the only two uncapped players in the starting team, while prop Lizo Gqoboka is also set to earn his debut off the bench.

"Rest assured that Australia's interest is at heart because we want to make sure Wallaby rugby is good at all levels".

Elstadt is picked at No 6 flank in a loose trio that also includes the experienced duo of Pieter-Steph du Toit (No 7, 46 caps) and No 8 Francois Louw (65 caps).

Every resource is being thrown at Cheika to make a winning start to the year in Johannesburg early on Sunday morning (AEST) so momentum can be built for the World Cup quest just two months away in Japan.

"We are excited for the forthcoming year and I want to congratulate Rynhardt, Herschel and Lizo on their first inclusion in a Springbok match-day squad, while the leadership role is not something new for Eben".

South Africa's team has players needing game time after injury and others on the fringes of the World Cup squad. The build-up has been good and there is definitely a very good vibe for match.

"We know we go into the game as heavy underdogs but most of the players have had a touch over three great weeks of training to prepare, so really they just can't wait to get out and get into the battle". Jesse Kriel, 12. Andre Esterhuizen, 11.

The phenomenon applies in the tight five, for instance, to Mtawarira, who sat out substantial tracts of Super Rugby for the Sharks through injury, as well as both locks, Etzebeth and Lood de Jager, despite their glowing reputations.

An all-black front row of Tendai "The Beast" Mtawarira, Bongi Mbonambi and Trevor Nyakane brings the number of black starters to eight. Marvin Orie, 20. Marcell Coetzee, 21.

Bulls stalwart Lizo Gqoboka is rewarded for a fine season, while Stormers dynamo Dillyn Leyds returns for the first time in two years.
