New blood for Boks

SPRINGBOKS coach Heyneke Meyer has added four players to the squad to take on Australia in the Rugby Championship in Pretoria this weekend, and the All Blacks in Soweto the following weekend.

Meyer has recalled 2007 World Cup winning prop CJ van der Linde and fly-half Elton Jantjies.

Prop Coenie Oosthuizen returns from injury while utility back Jaco Taute gets his first call-up after missing most of the Super Rugby season because of injury.

With New Zealand having won all four of its matches in the tournament, Australia and South Africa will be left to battle for second place if the All Blacks beat Argentina on Sunday.
