Springbok captain Eben Etzebeth shrugged off any suggestion of a second string line-up for Saturday’s Castle Lager Rugby Championship match against Australia at Emirates Airline Park when he gave his captain’s media conference on Friday.
The big lock will lead a squad featuring a Springbok centurion, three half centurions and five more players with more than 35 caps, including players who have claimed the SA Rugby Player of the Year award in three of the last four years.
“We all have a responsibility when we pull on that jersey and that lies with the 23 in South Africa as much as anyone else,” said Etzebeth.
“There’s not much difference between the guys who are here and the ones on their way to New Zealand. I don’t think the team could have been picked much stronger. This is a very strong team we have picked, and I have a lot of confidence in them for tomorrow’s Test.”
