Wales host South Africa in what is Warren Gatland's side's final Summer Series match - so it is the last chance for players to impress before the coach names his World Cup squad.


Gatland has made 14 changes to the side that lost to England at Twickenham last Saturday. Taine Basham, who was tackled high by Owen Farrell, is OK to play but starts from the bench. Liam Williams and Dan Biggar were initially selected to start but have been replaced due to injury. Debutant Cai Evans comes into the side and Sam Costelow starts at No 10.

Jac Morgan will once again captain the side, while Johnny Williams and Alex Cuthbert start at centre and wing respectively.

South Africa, meanwhile, welcome back talismanic captain Siya Kolisi who will play in his first match since April because of a knee injury. Springboks head coach Jacques Nienaber said of his return: "It's nice to have him back and have him playing again.

"He's worked hard and he really deserves it. The amount of effort and sacrifice that Siya put in to be ready now - this is probably a reward for him to get an opportunity to play. It's nice for the team to have him back because he's been an integral part of this team over the last six years that we've been together."
