Cape Town - Teboho "Oupa" Mohoje is likely to start at flank for the Springboks against the Wallabies at Newlands on Saturday, the Cape Times reports.

The 24-year-old Cheetahs flank has been on the periphery of the Bok squad during the first four rounds of the Rugby Championship.

He has seen first Juan Smith and later Warren Whiteley move above him in the pecking order during the overseas leg of the competition, but with Francois Louw ruled out with a pinched nerve in his neck, Mohoje could start in the No 7 jersey this weekend.

Mohoje has one Test cap to his name, having played in the 55-6 demolition of Scotland earlier this year.

Saturday's clash against Australia is scheduled to kick off at 17:05.

Possible Springbok team:

15 Willie le Roux, 14 Cornal Hendricks, 13 Jan Serfontein, 12 Jean de Villiers, 11 Bryan Habana, 10 Handré Pollard, 9 Francois Hougaard, 8 Duane Vermeulen, 7 Teboho Mohoje, 6 Marcell Coetzee, 5 Victor Matfield, 4 Eben Etzebeth, 3 Jannie du Plessis, 2 Adriaan Strauss, 1 Tendai Mtawarira.

Substitutes: 16 Bismarck du Plessis, 17 Trevor Nyakane, 18 Marcel van der Merwe, 19 Lood de Jager, 20 Schalk Burger, 21 Cobus Reinach, 22 Pat Lambie, 23 JP Pietersen.
