Edinburgh - Springbok coach Heyneke Meyer says he has been clear on the team that will take the field in the final Test of the tour against France in Paris next Saturday and nothing that happened at Murrayfield on Sunday has changed his mind.

“I do a lot of planning and I am clear in my mind what I want. What is important is that the players also know where they stand, and they are a great bunch of guys who have accepted rotation selections where they are necessary,” said Meyer.

“We had some lineout issues in the first half, and that put us under heaps of pressure. I told the guys at halftime that we had dug ourselves into a big hole and we needed to dig ourselves out. The Boks did score quite early in the second half but I thought generally we were a lot better in the second 40 so I suppose you could say we dug quite well. For us it is a learning experience and I thought we learned a lot out there.”
