LONDON - Wales have named their team to play the Springboks in the World Cup quarterfinals at Twickenham on Saturday.

It sees three changes from the one that lost to Australia in their Pool match last week.

No real surprise as Dan Lydiate returns to the Welsh loose-trio with the breakdown being an area that Wales will feel they can challenge the Springboks.

The experienced loose-head prop Gethin Jenkins is called up as they look to shore up their scrum which has struggled and looks to be a response to the Springboks own set-piece which has greatly improved.

While at outside centre 20-year-old Tyler Morgan gets the nod to go up against Jesse Kriel, two stars of the future set to be locked in a battle that could well be a decisive factor in who comes out victorious.

Kickoff in Saturday is at 5pm.
