Test of depth for Boks

HM won't take too many selection chances unless he has to, this is a tough tour and their priority will still be to win every game. Might see them experiment a bit more against Italy, that's about it. With Louw out, Habana is the only starting overseas Bok they'll lose against Wales, the bench might change a bit but nothing too drastic. Important to test depth in all positions but I think 3 spots that need special attention are tighthead, 8th man and fullback, haven't seen enough rotation and hate to think what would happen if a stalwart like Vermeulen was suddenly unavailable. The Italian game might be perfect to give other options a longer run.
