The Springbok team for the first test against the British and Irish Lions in <?xml:namespace prefix="st1" ns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags"?><city w:st="on"><place w:st="on">Durban will be named on Tuesday. <?xml:namespace prefix="o" ns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office"?>

Cheetahs open side flanker Heinrich Brussouw has been included in the Boks squad and is likely to start in place of Schalk Burger who has not trained all week.

Danie Russouw is predicted to be in the bench.

While the lions’ share of the British and Irish Lions test squad are already in <city w:st="on">Durban the remainder will be involved in Tuesday’s match against the Southern Kings at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in <city w:st="on"><place w:st="on">Port Elizabeth.

Shane Williams is struggling with a stomach bug and may be replaced by Tommy Bowe and scrumhalf Mike Blair will undergo a fitness test this morning.

Kick-off has been set for 3pm.

The good news is that about 3 000 tickets have become available for Saturday’s first test - tickets are selling for R1 140 each and are available for the second test in Pretoria and the third in Johannesburg.

The baby Boks will take on <country-region w:st="on">England</country-region> in the semi-finals of the IRB World Junior Championships in <city w:st="on">Osaka on Wednesday without flyhalf Sias Eberhson who has been suspended for three weeks for a dangerous tackle in their match against <country-region w:st="on"><place w:st="on">France</country-region> over the weekend.
