Sti Sithole (prop) and Vincent Tshituka (flanker), however, both had injury scares this week and will have to pass late fitness tests to prove their readiness to take the field.
Should they be ruled out, Dylan Smith and Wilhelm van der Sluys will move into the starting line-up respectively.
There were three changes amongst the replacements, with Wiehahn Herbst (prop), Burger Odendaal (centre) and Jamba Ulengo (wing) coming in for Smith, Van der Sluys and former Junior Springbok Manuel Rass (centre) respectively.
