Cell C Sharks prop Ox Nche and hooker Bongi Mbonambi have been recalled by South Africa head coach Jacques Nienaber for Saturday’s Test against France in Marseille.

They join two teammates from the Heineken Champions Cup Pool A side in the Springboks’ starting XV as Nienaber rings the changes after his side’s 19-16 loss to Ireland in Dublin last Saturday.

The other Cell C Sharks are also forwards, namely Eben Etzebeth, now the second most-capped Springbok lock with 107 Tests, and flanker Siya Kolisi, who again captains his country.

Vodacom Bulls wing Kurt-Lee Arendse, DHL Stormers fly-half Damian Willemse and prop Frans Malherbe, who are also set to make their Heineken Champions Cup debuts this season, retain their places – as does Leicester Tigers No.8 Jasper Wiese.
