Cape Town - The South African Rugby Union (SARU) has confirmed that Wednesday's team announcement for Saturday's crucial Rugby World Cup clash against Scotland has been delayed by a few hours. 

The team was originally due to be announced at 11:00 (SA time), as was the case for the previous two matches, but SARU have confirmed that the team announcement will now take place at 18:00.

Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer will also be naming a new captain for the tournament after Jean de Villiers returned home with a broken jaw following Saturday's 46-6 win over Samoa. 

Saturday's match at St. James' Park in Newcastle kicks off at 17:45.
