CAPE TOWN - Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer's named his team for their final Rugby World Cup Pool B clash against the USA on Wednesday (kick-off is at 17:45 SA time)

Meyer's resisted the urge to make wholesale changes for their clash against the tier two rugby nation, when they meet at London's Olympic stadium.

He's made just two changes to the starting team, with a further four changes to the bench.

Stormers man Frans Malherbe will get his first start at the Rugby World Cup 2015, replacing Jannie du Plessis at loosehead prop.

The other change sees Sharks speedster Lwazi Mvovo starting a second game at the tournament, as he comes in for JP Pietersen on the right wing.

Meyer's most eyebrow-raising selection in his 31-man World Cup squad, Bulls scrumhalf Rudy Paige, looks set to finally earn his first Springbok cap.

He'll wear the number 21 jersey and start on the bench as the reserve halfback.

Stade Francais flyhalf Morne Steyn will also make his first appearance at #RWC2015 if he comes of the bench. He takes Pat lambie's seat on the bench.

Schalk Brits will look to add to his first test try which he scored in the win over Samoa last week. The Saracens hooker will earn test cap number 10 if he comes off the bench.

He'll start as the replacement hooker with Adriaan Strauss dropping out of the matchday squad.

RSA Starting team: 15. Willie le Roux, 14. Lwazi Mvovo, 13. Jesse Kriel, 12 Damian de Allende, 11. Bryan Habana, 10. Handre Pollard, 9. Fourie du Preez, 8. Duane Vermuelen, 7. Schalk Burger, 6. Francois Louw, 5. Eben Etzebeth, 4. Lood de Jager, 3. Tendai Mtawarira, 2. Bismarck du Plessis, 1. Frans Malherbe.

Bench: 16. Schalk Brits, 17. Trevor Nyakane, 18. Coenie Oosthuizen, 19. Pieter-Steph du Toit, 20. Willem Alberts, 21. Rudy Paige, 22. Morne Steyn, 23 Jan Serfontein.
