Andy Goode names his XV to beat the Springboks in the third Test

Former England fly-half Andy Goode names a team he feels will be good enough to beat the Springboks at Newlands.

“Billy and Mako Vunipola have gone home this week because of injury and family reasons respectively and, on top of replacing those two, I think Danny Cipriani has to be given a start ahead of George Ford who has gone missing after good starts in both of the first two Tests,” wrote Goode.

“I think form players from the Premiership this season such as Dan Robson and Sam Simmonds have to be given an opportunity to show what they can do as well and I don’t think changing the whole team would be helpful but I’d make eight changes to the side to freshen things up.”
