Three changes made by Springbok coach Allister Coetzee for Saturdays clash against Ireland in Dublin. Beast Mtawaritra returns to the team after missing the Allblacks game in Newlands in Rugby Championship last month due to family commitment. Coenie Oosthuizen and Damian de Allende also make the starting fifteen, de Allende replacing Jan Serfontein who has moved to France Club Montpellier.

Mbonambi, Cassiem and Venter move to the bench.
