South Africa vs Tonga Preview

Following Malcolm Marx’s unfortunate Rugby World Cup-ending injury, Handré Pollard has been called up to the South Africa squad and will start at fly-half (number 10) against Tonga in Marseille on Sunday. This marks Pollard’s return to the Springboks, having last earned a cap in August 2022.

In response to their 13-8 defeat to Ireland, South Africa has made a total of 12 changes to their starting lineup. Only second-row Eben Etzebeth, captain Siya Kolisi (leading the Springboks for the 50th time), and number eight Jasper Wiese retain their positions in the pack, while the entire backline has been overhauled.

Duane Vermeulen, typically a number eight, will take on the openside flanker role for the first time since November 2018 against France and only the third time in his 72-cap career.

Tonga’s Semisi Paea steps into the number eight position, filling in for Vaea Fifita, who is serving a four-game suspension. Tonga’s starting XV features three changes from their previous match against Scotland as coach Toutai Kefu seeks to discover the right combinations to unlock his team’s attacking potential. Additionally, two changes have been made on both wings, with Anzelo Tuitavuki making his Rugby World Cup debut on the left and Fine Inisi starting on the right.

Notably, Tonga’s front-row trio of loose-head Siegfried Fisi’ihoi, hooker Paula Ngauamo, and tight-head and captain Ben Tameifuna will start together for the third consecutive match. With a combined total of 15 career Rugby World Cup appearances between them, they aim to pose challenges for the Springboks’ 37-year-old “rookie” hooker, though South Africa’s prop forwards may have their own plans to counter this strategy.
