Tokyo - Namibia coach Phil Davies has made sweeping changes to his team for the Pool B match against South Africa at City of Toyota Stadium on Saturday. 

Kick-off is at 11:45 SA time.

There are 10 changes to the starting line-up which lost 47-22 to Italy last Sunday.

Only captain Tjiuee Uanivi, Cliven Loubser, JC Greyling, Chad Plato and Johan Tromp return.

Peter John Walters - who became the first player since 2011 to make his Test debut for Namibia in a World Cup match when he came off the bench against Italy - will start at inside centre and Eugene Jantjies will extend the Welwitschias' all-time appearances record to 68.

AJ de Klerk is in the starting XV of a World Cup match for the first time. He has previously featured in three, all off the bench.
