Johannesburg - Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer is set to reward the new players in his squad by keeping them in the starting line-up for this weekend’s Castle Lager Incoming Series match against Scotland in Nelspruit.

According to the supersport.com website, Meyer admitted his initial idea was to rotate players through the three June tests, but after the performances he had seen, it was more important to reward them with a renewed call-up to the team so as to confirm his belief in them.

At the back, JJ Engelbrecht and Willie le Roux are set to keep their places as Meyer believes that they should be rewarded for their performance against Italy.

While the scrumhalf situation is still unresolved, Ruan Pienaar is set to start the test in Jano Vermaak’s place while Lwazi Mvovo may also get a run on the wing.
