Rugby Championship 2012: South Africa team to face Australia

SpringboksHeyneke Meyer has made several changes to his line-up to take on Australia this weekend.

Duane Vermeulen makes his debut for the Springboks, with Willem Alberts moving to the flank. Francois Hougaard is also shifted, to the wing from scrum-half and Ruan Pienaar starts at 9.
