Cape Town - Sport24 readers give their opinion on who should be picked to start for the Springboks from Heyneke Meyer's 38-man squad.

1 Tendai Mtawarira
2 Adrian Strauss
3 Jannie du Plessis
4 Eben Etzebeth
5 Juandre Kruger
6 Siya Kolisi
7 Arno Botha
8 Pierre Spies
9 Jano Vermaak
10 Morne Steyn
11 Raymond Rule
12 Jan Serfontein
13 Jean de Villiers
14 Willie le Roux
15 Patrick Lambie

16 Chillieboy Ralapelle
17 Coenie Oosthuizen
18 Lappies Labuschagne / Willem Alberts (depends on Alberts’ returning on form)
19 Marcell Coetzee
20 Francois Hougaard
21 Juan de Jong
22 Gio Aplon

Should one of the locks get injured, Arno, Lappies and Willem can all play at lock and all of them including Pierre and Siya is good line out options anyways!
Pat can cover on 10 if necessary while Gio and Willie can cover 15. Jean on the outside is not ideal but there is no one else really pushing for that 13 jersey!
Would have liked JP Peterson on 13 though.
