The Springbok team for Saturday’s third Test of the Castle Lager Outgoing Tour against Scotland in Edinburgh shows six changes, including two personnel changes and two positional switches in the starting lineup, in what promises to be another very tough encounter for the South Africans.
Duane Vermeulen moves back to No 8 in place of the injured Warren Whiteley, while Pieter-Steph du Toit will pack down at blindside flank again, moving from lock, where he started against England and France.
Upfront, RG Snyman will start in the second row for the fourth time in his short international career, due to a decision not to rush Eben Etzebeth back from the injury he sustained against England, and Du Toit’s shift from lock to loose forward.
The only other change to the starting team is at scrumhalf, where Embrose Papier will earn his first starting cap for the Springboks. With Faf de Klerk released back to his club in England, Ivan van Zyl comes into the match-23 as replacement scrumhalf, while Lood de Jager will provide lock cover on the bench.
Whiteley is struggling with a calf strain and because he also won’t be ready for next week’s last tour match in Cardiff in Wales, it was decided to withdraw him from the rest of the tour.
The Scots have built a formidable home record over the past two seasons under coach Gregor Townsend. Since the start of 2017, they have lost only one of their nine Tests at BT Murrayfield, which was last year against New Zealand. During this time, they’ve also beaten Ireland, England, Wales, France and Australia at home.
Johannesburg, 14 November 2018: Some of Africa’s finest young artists will gather at The Sheds at 1 Fox Street this Saturday for what promises to be a one-of-a-kind visual art, music, fashion and food feast.
The second edition of One Source Live creative festival will be serving up an optical buffet bound to leave the crowd satiated. From Mzansi’s darling of street fashion photography Trevor Stuurman and Kenya’s surrealist marvel photographer Osborne Macharia, to pure untapped young talent, the art exhibition will offer up vibrant works of photographs, paintings, installations and exhibitions.
The sartorial lensman, Stuurman, has created a multi-discipline installation that incorporates stills photography and performance art, lending a live pulsating feel to his exhibition that will be on show at different times throughout the day.
Macharia, who was the toast of the continent earlier this year when he unveiled commissioned critically-acclaimed art pieces to celebrate the release of Black Panther, will wow aficionados and newbies alike with his intriguing works that play in the Afro-futurism and science fiction narratives.
Those with an eye for the new will be delighted with five large-scale 3D installations commissioned by some of SA’s brightest young designers – Russell Abrahams, Seth Pimental, David Tshabalala, Keith Vlahakis and Lauren Mitchell. Look out for bottles of Absolut turned into works of art, social commentary via dynamic prints, vibrant palettes of energy, artistic reimagining of Africa and more showcases of an edgy youth spirit.
The famous American stand-up comedian and actor, Dave Chappelle, is performing on the African continent for the first time ever with three shows in South Africa. He will be hitting the Grand Arena, GrandWest stage on this inaugural African tour on 27 November 2018.
In 2017, Chappelle celebrated 30 years in comedy by releasing four special comedy shows on Netflix, along with a double-feature vinyl comedy album. He has since won two Emmy Awards, a Grammy, and a Pollstar`s Comedy Tour of The Year Award.
Dave Chappelle is best known for his television sketch comedy programme Chappelle`s Show and is one of the most popular touring comics on the American circuit. His shows sell out within minutes.
“It’s great to have Dave Chappelle, one of America’s best comedians at GrandWest” says Elouise Matthys, the PR and Promotions Manager at GrandWest. “We are so delighted he has chosen our venue for his first tour to the African continent. I am sure the audience is going to love his show. Get tickets soon as it is sure to sell out fast.”
Tickets are available from Computicket and Big Concerts starting from R630. Doors open at 19h30 and the show starts at 20h30.

The final line-up for the 2019 Gold Cup has been confirmed following a nailbiting conclusion to the domestic club season in the Boland town of Worcester on Saturday.
An intercept try deep into injury time gave Onelogix United Bulk Worcester Villagers a 36-29 win over defending champions Roses United in the Boland Grand Challenge final, held in front of an estimated 12,000 fans at one of the country’s most iconic and historic venues, Esselen Park.
Villagers’ victory brought the curtain down on one of the longest club seasons on record, with both the Boland and Western Province leagues, at one stage threatened with cancellation, only kicking off in June due to the drought that devastated the Western Cape.
The 2018 season was also one of the most memorable in years, with large crowds commonplace across the country as club and community rugby showed a remarkable resurgence in popularity.
The newly-crowned Boland champions, established in 1883 and celebrating their 136th anniversary in 2019, will having the honour of being the oldest club in next year’s Gold Cup.
