Durban - The power of the "green and gold" will not play any part in Saturday's crucial Rugby World Cup clash between the Springboks and Scotland at Newcastle.
The South African Rugby Union (SARU) confirmed the news via their Twitter account on Friday.
Instead, the Boks will play in their 'away' kit and will be clad in all white.
The tweet was accompanied by a photograph showing the Boks in their match-day kit - Springbok captain Fourie du Preez and vice-captain Schalk Burger sitting either side of coach Heyneke Meyer.
Kick-off is at 17:45.
